Ludwigia arcuata is one of the most delicate-looking Ludwigia species. The submersed form of L. arcuata looks a lot like Didiplis diandra, and it is also really easily confounded with Ludwigia brevipes.

L. arcuata is a reddish, strongly ramifying stem plant. Sufficient light is a basic requirement for successful cultivation, as is an ample nutrient supply. Micronutrients help to preserve the reddish colouration of the shoot tips and the leaf undersides. Macronutrients are usually plentiful, as they are added with fish food. Nitrate, phosphate and potassium only have to be supplemented if you fertilise your tank with CO2, which makes the true Ludwigia arcuata an excellent choice for aquaria not equipped with any CO2 injection system.

Due to its delicate structure, L. arcuata ought to be planted in groups of at least 6 stems. These groups with their red and golden leaves are especially well-suited for the middleground, where they contrast effectively with a dark background or other small-leaved plants like Hemianthus micranthemoides or Rotala rotundifolia 'Green'.
