this was sold to me as an anubias from an aquarium specialist store. the store hand didn't know which type, but it was only $5 for i decided to take te risk, it has been growing reasonably well, the leaves curled as i left it floating for a few days while i found something to attach it too. and one of the stalks is browning a little but i think that is because i had a rubber band cutting into the base of it =S. oops.

anyway, any help ID'ing is appreciated, i have searched plant geek and haven't been able to get a definite match, a few look similar though.

After reading the webernet in its entirety .. thats right, finished it cover to cover, I think its this. (https://www.theaquaticroom.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=1512&osCsid=czczuyipc) Sadly if I'm correct, then I've been identifying mine incorrectly. Sigh ...

It definitely shares some characteristics of what I thought was my Echinodorus Rose, but if THIS is really it, then mine is ... blah ... back to the internets with me.

Okay, after semi-careful interwebbing, I'm now sure mine is an Echindorus Ozelot, not "Rose" since my is spotted.

thnx for the reply =].
and it is very close but i don't think they are the same, mine has a rhizome, at least think that it does =P. and the leaves are pointed as opposed to being rounded like a sword.

hmmm, in that case something from the Anubias family? Minima or something along those lines?
