At this stage I would not recommend you consider soil substrates, that has a lot of issues of its own for someone new to a planted aquarium.
I have been growing plants in regular aquarium gravel for 20 years. It is the light first and foremost that is crucial, and then nutrients (fertilizers). I agree with Blaxicanlatino that red ludwigia is more fussy, but given the fact that you were doing well I would suggest we simply improve what went wrong. And I previously offered what I can in that regard.
Keeping things simple means less can go wrong.
