I tried it... It didn't do too hot, but they were in a tank that nothing grows well in. I've been meaning to try it again.
Under my light, the apearence of the plant changed to something more like rotala indica though.

My experience was the same as Red's, it started looking like indica and then it just withered to the point where I yanked it from the tank. I was running 1.3 watts per gallon of 6700K light, dosing weekly with Flourish Comprehensive, in a sand substrate. I think that plant requires high light. Your 10gl sounds like it has alot of light, you may as well try the plant and then let us know how it does! :-)

i have a bunch of red ludwigia in my tank that take up the entire back left corner of the tank but i honestly dont like how they look. dont get me wrong,, the shiny leaves with the blood red color is amazing but.... i just dont like it! lol thats why i wanted to substitute it for the wallichii. unless anyone else has any suggestions ^^

pretty much, if you want red plants in a low tech tank, your options are ludwigea, crypt wendtii, and possibly prosperinica palustrus.
