Ludwigia repens “Mesakana”

genaue Herkunft unbekannt

Habit, plant type:

This plant is according to Kasselmann (2010) 1 a form of the very variable species Ludwigia repens, however, it also resembles the hybrid L. palustris x repens.
It is not clear what the name affix “Mesakana” refers to. Depending on the wholesaler it is sometimes also spelled “Messacana”, “Messancana” or “Messicana” (the latter meaning “Mexican” in Italy). Hans-Georg Kramer (2009) 2 coined the German expression “Bunte Ludwigie”, which translates as “colourful Ludwigia”.

In comparison to other varietys of L. repens and to L. palustris x repens, the leaves of L. repens “Mesakana” grow larger, and have a rounder form. They are also more colourful and have a more pronounced pattern. According to Kramer (2009) this Ludwigia also has higher demands and special characteristics:
– a high supply of micronutrients is required, and it is a strong competitor with other Ludwigias;
– develops more nicely in softer water;
– from time to time, the leaves on especially strong shoots tend to wilt and are cast off without any obvious reason. The shoots die off afterwards.

Beschreibung

Diese Ludwigie wird unter variierenden Handelsnamen gefьhrt: “Mesakana”, “Mesacana”, “Messancana” usw. Es ist eine farbenprдchtige, rundblдttrige Auslese von Ludwigia repens.

Ludwigia repens ‘Mesakana’ ist keine sonderlich schwierige Aquarienpflanze, stellt aber etwas hцhere Ansprьche als “normale” L. repens. Auf eine gute Makro- und Mikronдhrstoffversorgung ist zu achten, auch entwickelt sie sich in eher weichem Wasser am besten. Eine krдftige Beleuchtung sorgt fьr prдchtige Rot- und Orange-Tцne.

Im Mittel- bis Hintergrund von nicht zu kleinen Aquarien bildet ein Busch von Ludwigia repens ‘Mesakana’ einen farbenfrohen Blickfang. Sie kontrastiert gut mit grьnen, feinfiedrigen Pflanzen.

Bitte beachte, dass wir bei der submersen Variante dieser Pflanze nicht dafьr garantieren kцnnen, dass die Pflanze frei von Schnecken oder anderen Wirbellosen ist.

Diese Pflanze ist nach Kasselmann (2010) generalreferences#1 eine Form der variablen Art Ludwigia repens, sie hat aber auch groЯe Дhnlichkeit mit der Hybride L. palustris x repens.

Worauf sich der Namenszusatz “Mesakana” bezieht, ist unklar, er wird je nach Hдndler auch “Messacana”, “Messancana” oder “Messicana” geschrieben (das letztere bedeutet auf italienisch “Mexikanisch”). Hans-Georg Kramer (2009) generalreferences#2 hat fьr die Pflanze die deutsche Bezeichnung “Bunte Ludwigie” kreiert.

Nach Kramer (2009) stellt diese Ludwigie auch hцhere Ansprьche und hat besondere Eigenheiten:

– hoher Bedarf an Mikroelementen, darin mit anderen Ludwigien konkurrierend;

– entwickelt sich in weicherem Wasser schцner;

– zuweilen ohne ersichtlichen Grund schlaffes Herunterhдngen und Abwurf der Blдtter von einzelnen besonders krдftigen Trieben, die daraufhin faulen.

Description

Ludwigia repens ‘Mesakana’ is not a particularly difficult plant, but has somewhat higher demands than “standard” L. repens. A good macro- and micronutrient supply is important, also rather soft water is beneficial. Good lighting provides vibrand red and orange tones.

In the midground to background of not too small aquaria, a bush of Ludwigia repens ‘Mesakana’ provides a colourful eyecatcher. It contrasts well with fine-textured green plants.

Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.

This plant is according to Kasselmann (2010) generalreferences#1 a form of the very variable species Ludwigia repens, however, it also resembles the hybrid L. palustris x repens.
It is not clear what the name affix “Mesakana” refers to. Depending on the wholesaler it is sometimes also spelled “Messacana”, “Messancana” or “Messicana” (the latter meaning “Mexican” in Italy). Hans-Georg Kramer (2009) generalreferences#2 coined the German expression “Bunte Ludwigie”, which translates as “colourful Ludwigia”.

Awesome. Assassin Snail Walking Eating Killer Snail, Ludwigia Mesakana, Pelia Moss – Aquascape

Aquascaping is the craft of arranging aquatic plants, as well as rocks, stones, cavework, or driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium—in effect, gardening under water. Aquascape designs include a number of distinct styles, including the garden-like Dutch style and the Japanese-inspired nature style. Typically, an aquascape houses fish as well as plants, although it is possible to create an aquascape with plants only, or with rockwork or other hardscape and no plants.

Although the primary aim of aquascaping is to create an artful underwater landscape, the technical aspects of aquatic plant maintenance must also be taken into consideration. Many factors must be balanced in the closed system of an aquarium tank to ensure the success of an aquascape. These factors include filtration, maintaining carbon dioxide at levels sufficient to support photosynthesis underwater, substrate and fertilization, lighting, and algae control.

Designs
See also: Garden design, Water garden, and Micro landschaft
Dutch style

The Dutch aquarium employs a lush arrangement in which multiple types of plants having diverse leaf colors, sizes, and textures are displayed much as terrestrial plants are shown in a flower garden. This style was developed in the Netherlands starting in the 1930s, as freshwater aquarium equipment became commercially available. It emphasizes plants located on terraces of different heights, and frequently omits rocks and driftwood. Linear rows of plants running left-to-right are referred to as “Dutch streets”. dutch aquascape and freshwater aquarium and aquascape pondless waterfall

Japanese styles
Nature style

A contrasting approach is the “nature aquarium” or Japanese style, introduced in the 1990s by Takashi Amano. Amano’s three-volume series, Nature Aquarium World, sparked a wave of interest in aquarium gardening, and he has been cited as having “set a new standard in aquarium management”. Amano’s compositions drew on Japanese gardening techniques that attempt to mimic natural landscapes by the asymmetrical arrangement of masses of relatively few species of plants, and which set rules governing carefully selected stones or driftwood, usually with a single focal point. and iwagumi aquascape and aquarium aquascape design ideas and takashi amano and nano aquascape and vivarium

The Iwagumi style is a specific subtype of the nature style. The Iwagumi (岩組?) term itself comes from the Japanese “rock formation” and refers to a layout where stones play a leading role. In the Iwagumi style, each stone has a name and a specific role. Rocks provide the bony structure of the aquascape and the typical geometry employs a design with three main stones, with one larger stone and two other smaller stones, although additional rocks can also be used. and simple aquascape and reef aquarium and rock aquascape and aquascape ponds and aquascape logo and paludarium and japanese aquascaping

Some hobbyists also refer to a “jungle” (or “wild jungle”) style, separate from either the Dutch or nature styles, and incorporating some of the features of them both. The plants are left to assume a natural, untrimmed look. Jungle style aquascapes usually have little or no visible hardscape material, as well as limited open space. Bold, coarser leaf shapes, such as Echinodorus bleheri, are used to provide a wild, untamed appearance. Unlike nature syle, the jungle style does not follow clean lines, or employ fine textures. and aquascape tree and aquascape fountains and aquascape pond pumps and saltwater aquascaping and aquarium

The styles above often combine plant and animal species based on the desired visual impact, without regard to geographic origin. Biotope aquariums are designed instead to replicate exactly a particular aquatic habitat at a particular geographic location, and not necessarily to provide a gardenlike display. Plants and fish need not be present at all.

A paludarium is an aquarium that combines water and land inside the same environment. These designs can represent habitats including tropical rainforests, jungles, riverbanks, bogs, or even the beach. In a paludarium, part of the aquarium is underwater, and part is above water.

Saltwater reefs
Main article: Reef aquarium

Dutch and nature style aquascapes are traditionally freshwater systems. In contrast, relatively few ornamental plants can be grown in a saltwater aquarium. Saltwater aquascaping typically centers, instead, on mimicking a reef. An arrangement of live rock forms the main structure of this aquascape, and it is populated by corals and other marine invertebrates as well as coralline algae, which together serve much the same aesthetic role as freshwater plants.

Ludwigia repens Forster (1771)
– Ludwigia płożąca

SYNONIMY : Ludwigia natans Ell. (1821)
POCHODZENIE : Rozprzestrzeniona w południowej części Ameryki Północnej i w Ameryce Środkowej
OPIS : W naturze, L. repens jest wysoce zmienna w gatunki i hybrydyzuje łatwo z innymi gatunkami Ludwigia, co czyni >Ludwigia repens jest jednym z najbardziej popularnych roślin akwariowych na całym świecie. Istnieje kilka form tego gatunku w handlu. Szczególnie kolorowa odmiana o okrągłych liściach jest sprzedawana pod nazwą „Ludwigia mesakana” lub „mesacana”. Podobno L. „repens” ‚Rubin’ nie powina być zaliczany do gatunku L. repens, ale jest raczej blisko spokrewniona z L. glandulosa i jest hybrydą. Gatunek ten występuje w trzech formach: zielono listna, czerwono listna i meksykańska. Kształtem liści wszystkie są do siebie podobne i maja wymiary 2-4 cm długości i 1,8-3 cm szerokości, są szeroko lancetowate do okrągłych. Forma zielono listna ma liście i łodygi zielone jedynie uprawiane w paludarium mogą mieć przy silnym oświetleniu łodygi i dolne części liści zaczerwienione. Forma czerwono listna ma liście koloru lekko brunatnego od dołu, od góry oliwkowozielone. Forma meksykańska nad woda ma łodygę i dolne strony liści koloru zielonego lub lekko brunatne. Górna strona liścia zawsze zielona. W uprawie podwodnej bardzo szybko rośnie wykładając się na powierzchni wody. Kwiaty mają maleńkie, jasnożółte płatki korony krótsze od działek kielicha.

L. repens wygląda bardzo podobnie do L. palustris oraz hybrydy L. palustris x repens, jej główne cechy wyróżniające to struktura kwiatu rośliny emersyjnej. Kwiat L. repens ma cztery małe żółte płatki , natomiast w L. palustris płatki są całkowicie nieobecne. Palustris L. x repens często tworzy mniej niż cztery płatki (lub nawet wcale) krótsze niż działki kielicha kwiatu. Ogonki liściowe L. repens L. palustris x repens są często stosunkowo krótsze niż L. palustris.
UPRAWA : Rośliny te są jedne z najczęściej spotykanych w akwariach i dość łatwe w uprawie, są jednym z najłatwiejszych w utrzymaniu czerwonych roślin akwariowych i dobrze rosną w stosunkowo słabym świetle (0,4 wata na litr), a nie potrzebują nawożenia CO2. Twardość wody nie odgrywa większego znaczenia, może być kwaśna jak i lekko zasadowa o temperaturze w granicach 18-30°C. Wymaga dobrego oświetlenia, ale może także rosnąć w lekkim zacienieniu z wyjątkiem formy meksykańskiej. Roślina mająca pionowy wzrost słabo się rozgałęzia. Niski poziom NO3 (ok. 5 mg / l) i wysoka zawartość fosforanu (1,5-2 mg / l), jak również dostarczanie dużo żelaza i mikroelementów intensyfikuje czerwone odcienie rośliny jeszcze bardziej. Podobno świetlówki o ciepłocie 9500 Kelvin także zwiększają czerwone zabarwienie. Rozmnażać ją możemy przez podział łodygi. Bardzo łatwo ją rozmnażać w warunkach paludaryjnych, gdzie się rozgałęzia dość obficie.

Ludwigia repens„Mesakana”

OPIS : Roślina ta jest według Kasselmann (2010) jedną z form gatunku bardzo zmiennego Ludwigia repens jednak również przypomina hybrydę L. palustris x repens. Nie jest jasne jaka jest właściwa nazwa „Mesakana” . W zależności od hurtownika jest czasami pisane również „Messacana”, „Messancana” lub „messicana”. W porównaniu do innych odmian L. repens i L. palustris x repens, liście L. repens „Mesakana” rosną większe i mają kształt zaokrąglony. Są też bardziej kolorowe i mają bardziej wyraźny wzór.

UPRAWA : Według Kramer (2009) ta Ludwigia ma również wyższe wymagania i specjalne cechy:
Wymagana jest duża podaż mikroelementów. Rozwija się ładnie w miękkiej wodzie. Od czasu do czasu, szczególnie dolne liście silnych pędów mają tendencję do zrzucania bez żadnego oczywistego powodu. Pędy później giną.

W MOIM AKWARIUM

(forma czerwona)

Roślina ta ma czerwone liście od dołu. Rośnie dobrze w temperaturze do 25°C, w wyższych wzrost jej ustaje. Rośliny które są za długie ucinamy w 1/3 długości od podłoża. Górną część wsadzamy do gruntu obrywając dolne liście, gdyż inaczej gniłyby one i zanieczyszczały wodę. Dolna część pozostawiona w gruncie bardzo szybko wypuszcza boczne odrosty.

(forma zielona)

Jest to odmiana z całkowicie zielonymi liśćmi i łodygami. Obie formy są roślinami bardzo ozdobnymi, nadającymi się do obsadzenia tylnego planu akwarium. Rosną wolniej od nadwódek i lubią dużo światła.

Zielona formę hoduję również w paludarium ustawionym na parapecie okiennym i oświetlanym tylko światłem naturalnym.

Latem ludwigia kwitła maleńkimi kwiatami. Gdy roślina ta kwitnie pod wodą to nie widać jej płatków kwiatowych, w paludarium chociaż są one bardzo maleńkie to się wykształcają.

Akwarystyka to Moja Pasja

Witam wszystkich na mojej stronie poświęconej akwarystyce. Jestem akwarystą amatorem od ponad 30 lat. Akwarium traktuję jako hobby oraz odpoczynek i rozrywkę.

Людвигия Мехико (Ludwigia repens «Mesakana»)

So if I have a plant and have no idea what it is, I might post a thread that is titled “Plant ID”.

How can I 100% identify a plant species?

I’m curious because I don’t like not knowing. Do I need a microscope to look at the leaf structure? Is there a database somewhere that has accurate information. Or do I just go off things like the plant profiles on this and other sites?

A good example is DHG. People are always selling Dwarf Hair Grass, but there are so many different varieties, it could be hard to determine which is which.

The above is just an example, I’m not asking about DHG (I have to state this or someone will go on about the different varieties of DHG lol).

Thanks for any help.

Yup, flowers and/or seeds can be useful for identifying species.

Now the trouble is getting them to flower. And for all the non-flowering plants.

My Golden Rule of planted tanks: WWTAD-
“What would Takashi Amano do?”

Familiar plants can be pretty reliably identified if you have some experience, access to good info and a good eye. That takes some time.

To REALLY know what something is, especially things that are unfamiliar and new, you usually (but not always) need fertile specimens, meaning plants with flowers and/or fruit. In our case, this usually means growing things emersed or letting them grow out of the water. What then? A good plant key and/or descriptions, like here:
http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.as. axon_ >
Yes, there are a LOT of characters to go on. It really helps too to have reliably identified specimens with which to compare and more than one if possible so you can see the range of variation between them due to age, regional differences, environmentally induced differences and simply variation between individuals.

If you really get stuck or can’t get access to a good key or information covering the area or family/genus you’re working on, it may be time to consult a specialist. Even then, some fall through the cracks (Hygrophila sp. from Araguaia!).

Thanks for the comments. I have been reading about flowers can distinguish different species.

The main reason why I’m wondering about how to correctly identify different species is because I bought some Ludwigia Repens from Petsmart and I also bought some Ludwigia “Rubin” from someone here on the forum.

Both look almost identical except the Repens is a bit more ovate than the “rubin”.

I just spent the past couple hrs researching (mainly on http://www.flowgrow.de , a German site) about these plants.

Now I believe that both are Repens. The more ovate one may be Ludwigia Repens “Mesakana”. but for the most part they are identical.

The Ludwigia Repens has many different forms.

So with the plant: Ludwigia Repens “Mesakana”

Does the double quotes specify a different form?

Is that what the Double quotes are refered too?

I also notice some species listed like this:

Ludwigia repens X arcuata

This would refer to the this plant being a hybrid of the two?

How does this Hybrid thing happen in nature and is it possible to recreate this if we had both plants?

Thanks for any advice! I’m becoming more and more fascinated with different plant species.

‘Rubin’ has leaves that can be opposite (two at a node), sub-opposite or alternate (one at each node). L. repens (no caps on the r!) always has opposite leaves. Always. The ‘Rubin’ may be L. repens crossed with something that has alternate leaves, hence the ‘confusion’ with how its leaves grow. Maybe. It’s still a bit of a mystery.

No idea what Mesakana is. Maybe a new cultivar?

Correctly written as L. repens x L. arcuata, but yes, it does denote a hybrid. And yes, that combination is quite common in Florida. Many, many hybrid Ludwigias out there, and we’ve found a few. You could create it yourself too. Many species have their roots in hybridization. The hybrids themselves usually occur because of cross pollination by insects, at least with Ludwigias ( Tinanti is offline

Double quotes = unofficial/pending name for a plant awaiting cultivar status OR awaiting formal species description

Single quotes = cultivar, recognized by the International Society for Horticultural Science.

If a plant has not gone through the proper venues of receiving official cultivar status, use of single quotes are not allowed.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Are these single and double quotes only used on different forms of plants?

Ex: Bacopa monnieri ‘Compact’
Ludwigia ovalis ‘Pink’

If it was a pending species it would be:

Bacopa sp. “Colorata”

Lastly, I notice the “var” being used:

Blyxa japonica var alternifolia

What is the difference between this var and single or double quotes?

Thanks for clearing that up.

Are these single and double quotes only used on different forms of plants?

Ex: Bacopa monnieri ‘Compact’

Ludwigia ovalis ‘Pink’

With the single quotes/cultivars, absolutely yes– it is with regards to a distinct individual clone that stands out from the rest of the species that was discovered or made in cultivation.

If it was a pending species it would be:

Bacopa sp. “Colorata”

Double quotes are used for unofficial names, whether it be for a plant awaiting cultivar status, or a plant awaiting a formal description aka scientific name. Your example is a reference to the later. A hypothetical example of the former would be Rotala “Fuzzy Bunnies”

Lastly, I notice the “var” being used:

Blyxa japonica var alternifolia

What is the difference between this var and single or double quotes?

With the single quotes/cultivars, absolutely yes– it is with regards to a distinct individual clone that stands out from the rest of the species that was discovered or made in cultivation.

Double quotes are used for unofficial names, whether it be for a plant awaiting cultivar status, or a plant awaiting a formal description aka scientific name. Your example is a reference to the later. A hypothetical example of the former would be Rotala “Fuzzy Bunnies”

Yes, var= variety. Difference between single and double quotes are the following:
1) var is part of the formal description of the plant, aka scientific name. Because of this, the epithet following var MUST be in Latin. Varieties are naturally found in the wild, and not made in cultivation.
2) var =/= cultivar for that reason. Cultivars are man made. However if you happen to grow a certain plant that shines from the rest of that same variety subset, it may be promoted to cultivar. (Can get cultivar from var but not the other way around)
3) var =/= double quotes because double quotes are unofficial names whereas var IS already an official name.

Okay that makes sense. So the use of var is just for a plant that has many different variations, but each one is essentially it’s own species.

Thanks! I think even with all this information, a lot of people get it all mixed up and it creates confusion in this hobby. Since I’m planning to sell eventually, I want to get this right. Also as a buyer I can have better success getting the species I want.

There needs to be one in depth place where you can find information about plant species. With mutiple clear pictures of plants and tons of info.
