Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'Curly', commonly known as Ludwigia Tornado or Ludwigia Twister, is an eye-catching aquatic plant prized for its unique spiral growth pattern and vibrant colors. This plant is a favorite among aquascaping enthusiasts looking to add a dynamic and visually appealing element to their aquariums.

Key Features:

  • Spiral Growth Pattern: The most distinctive feature of Ludwigia Tornado is its curly, spiral leaves that give the plant a twisted appearance. This unusual growth pattern sets it apart from other Ludwigia varieties and adds a striking visual element to any aquascape.
  • Vibrant Colors: Under optimal conditions, Ludwigia Twister exhibits a stunning array of colors ranging from green to reddish hues. The leaves can develop intense red and orange tones, especially when exposed to high light and supplemented with CO2.


  • Aesthetic Appeal: The unique spiral leaves and vibrant colors make Ludwigia Tornado a standout feature in any aquarium. It adds depth and movement to the aquascape, creating a dynamic and visually stimulating environment.
  • Versatility: This plant can be used in various parts of the aquarium, from the midground to the background, depending on the desired visual effect. Its versatility makes it suitable for a wide range of aquascaping styles.
  • Oxygenation and Filtration: Like other aquatic plants, Ludwigia Twister helps improve water quality by oxygenating the water and providing natural filtration. It also offers hiding spots and shelter for fish and other aquatic creatures.

Ideal Conditions:

  • Lighting: Requires medium to high light to achieve its best coloration and growth. Strong lighting enhances the red and orange tones of the leaves.
  • CO2 and Nutrients: Thrives with CO2 supplementation and a nutrient-rich environment. Regular fertilization with macro and micronutrients will support healthy growth and vibrant colors.
  • Water Parameters: Adaptable to a range of water conditions, but prefers slightly acidic to neutral pH levels (6.0-7.5) and temperatures between 22-28°C (72-82°F).


  • Stem Cuttings: Ludwigia Tornado is easily propagated by stem cuttings. Simply cut a healthy stem and replant it in the substrate. The cuttings will develop roots and continue to grow, helping to create a lush and dense display.

      Mini Pellia not all Pellia

      I had to pick out the Christmas Moss then attach it to another stone. If you don't mind Christmas Moss this is ok but I only wanted Pellia.

      Douglas Breen

      The entire clay slab is covered nicely. Nice bright color.

      Lauren Ramos
      Absolutely beautiful!

      It was bigger than I expected which was nice and it arrived nice and green! Makes my aquarium feel kind of industrial in a cool way! Arrived safe and quickly.

      John Czernia
      Very healthy

      The only Mini Pellia moss I've bought that didn't die!!

      FINALLY a portion that didn't die on me! I've bought this species of moss SOO many times from various places and each time none of it made it past a month. Even though my tanks are matured and clean it would just turn brown and disintegrate.
      Bought one back in September from here because it was on sale and the portion size caught my eye. It's growth has not disappointed! First 2 pictures show just some of the growth from that September batch and I didn't even include the other 2-3 more rocks that look similar.
      Bought another batch during the Black Friday sale to cover more rocks and the portion was bigger than the first. You do need to clean the old growth off but even then, its still waaay more than I ever got from other places.

      Great quality plants

      Nice portion size and healthy plants that got delivered in timely fashion. Waiting to grow out.
