Ludwigia helminthorrhiza

Ludwigia helminthorrhiza is a floating plant with highly characteristic roots which grow into air sacs. These are a good shelter for young fish. If light is sufficiently available the leaves will grow into a round shape and develop a reddish glow. This plant is a lovely sight floating outside on the pond, but also looks attractive in the house, for example in a large dish.
