    . It has carpeted part of the bottom plus some of it is free floating. The only thing I can think of that may have happened is that yard grass seeds were thrown in from cutting the grass. What do you all think?
    ask ?'s and change some water pair of JD's and loving it.

    My thoughts were a chain sword of some kind? Like Echinodorus Quadricostatus or Echinodorus tenellus?

    Do you have any photos of the underside/stem and root structure?

    That sounds extremely unlikely.

    Got an underwater pic?

    I didn't think it was likely in the wild, but I don't know where these SA plants have been introduced or where OP lives. A Lilaeopsis sp is a possibility too (probably more likely than Echinodorus sp). I had Lilaeopsis in mind too but forgot what its name was and was leaving in a rush D:

    Edited to add: Is NC North Carolina? If so Lilaeopsis carolinensis is from Carolina and looks pretty similar. I think that's a pretty strong possibility?

    I don't think it is either lilaeopsis nor helanthium. Neither grow floating on the surface as well as on the bottom.
    As mentioned, pictures of its stem and root structure would help.

    I will try to get a closer pic of the bottom but it won't be from under water. I didn't plant it , it came on voluntarily . I've had this little pond for about 4 years now and I've only planted the water Iris and the other plant that I pulled out of a lake maybe 2 years ago . This is the first time this plant has shown itself. Is there a chance that it grew from seeds that were thrown in from cutting grass ? I'm getting a pic now and post it through taptalk. thanks everyone.OH , AND HAPPY FATHERS DAY ALL YA'LL DADS OUT THERE.

    They are the same in both posts . Its just that they were started on taptalk and i dont really know how to use it real well yet . I have a pic of it on the other post that shows what the plant looks like underwater . Sorry about the confusion , maybe cliff or one of the other mods can put them together ? Please , would you do that for me cliff?

    I think it is luronium natans or a similar species. I included a link with pic on your other post titled "thi is it"
