I am having a similar problem with mine. I have a tank full of plants, all doing really well, except my Ludwigia. I would not say its melting, but it is developing holes in its leaves and has not grown since I bought it a year ago. Infact it is a lot smaller now than when it was shipped to me.
I read up on plant inflictions and it "seems" to be low K. My water is fairly hard (~8-10 dK) and Ive been dosing KNO2, K2PO4 and KSO4 so I think I got the K covered.
I have tried to suppliment CO2 with Flourish, but it made the water cloudy with no improvemt to any plants, not to menting my Ludwigia.
I also started using root tabs. My L. aromatica and another large plant, (unsure the name. Sagitium or something like that,) are now taking over my tank and this Ludwigia will be chocked out if it does not start growing
The name of the large plant isnt a sagittaria, its actually a Cryptocoryne wendtii. Bought it many years ago and survived several die outs and neglect for 2 years
