Cuban Ludwigia - Anyone have any tips?

I just picked a couple of these up yesterday from my LFS. So far the only plants I have are Anubias, they are pretty easy and I haven't had to do much to worry about them. However, I want to make sure my new Ludwigia survives, and thrives.
I did some research online and looks like they are pretty hardy, my only concern is my substrate. I am using a 3/8" crushed rock mix that is pretty loose. I am not sure what, if any, nutrients are in it?

The tank water is 2 days old, and its tap water thats been treated. There are no fish in the tank yet, but this will begin my cycle. Hopefully here in a few weeks I can introduce some fish, but there's still alittle work left to be done on the tank (aeration & heat).

One last thing. While removing one of my plants from the bag, it broke about 3" from the bottom of the stump. I took the top, that's about 7" and planted it in the substrate in hopes that it will re-root. Is there anything I can do to help the plant root? or can i expect the top & the stump to just wither away & die??
