Seed germination in Ludwigia was greatly influenced by seed age and soil type. InÂ Ludwigia abyssinica germination was not influenced by seed age and soil texture. FreshlyÂ shed seeds and six month old seeds of Ludwigia decurrens variety B showed a very lowÂ percentage germination on all the germinationmedia, and six month old seeds germinatedÂ significantly earlier than freshly shed seeds. Some soil types could significantly reduceÂ germination of freshly shed seeds of L. hyssopifolia, L. erecta, L. leptocarpa and L.Â octovalvis var linearis.
