    Hello everyone,

    It's been a while since I've posted but I hope everyone is well, including the fish and plants! I recently purchased a very nice Water Lettuce plant for my new 29 gallon open top tank and while I was cleaning off the roots I noticed this little plant was stuck in there. I pulled it out and washed it up as well, and threw it in the quarantine bucket with the rest of my new plants. It's had zero snails and grown quite a bit just in the last week, but for the life of me I have NO idea what this little guy is??? It's a cute little plant, and doing well so I'll gladly add it to my new tank. I put this topic here in stem plants because that's my closest guess lol, but I still can't figure out what species this is. Can anybody tell??

    Hey stranger.

    Mmm so small but the round leaves kinda look like some kind of rotala.

    Possibly rotala indica?

    Let it grow up and we will have the excitement of not knowing what it will be.

    Hmm I've never had any rotala before! I'll have to start doing my research. It's certainly doing well just floating in my quarantine bucket with ample CO2, ferts, and light. It's even beginning to grow new leaves now. I'll plant it in my new tank and see what becomes of it. I love that it has a nice deep purple trim around the edges of the leaves

    I noticed the first two leaves are round but the inner leaves are much more spear-shaped, like that of an Amazon sword. I'm pretty sure this isn't an Amazon sword but those round leaves don't appear to be it's true leave. Rather I think they're just the first pair of leaves the plant formed after germination. Think of how an apple seed's first two leaves are round but it's true leaves are pointy. This plant almost reminds me of a ludwigia, but I could be way off XD

    Almost looks like anubia, but the roots are all wrong...

    Could still be a rhizome plant without an obvious rhizome, it does look like one. When my anubias roots dig into the substrate, they turn white, just like the pic......
    I have no idea what that is, but am curious now. It looks like 50/50 anubias and hygro

    As a matter of fact, I had one do that, too

    My question though is how did that plantlet get caught up in a floating plant's roots?

    Plecos? I have to replant hygro rosanervig regularly from my water lettuce roots. Either bottom feeders kick it up or current.

    I just thought of the cardinal plant. I found this
    http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...ge=1&_k=76sdv4

    It looks like that one is a rare variety. I think the elongated leaves represent the regular variety, but the dwarf variety has round green leaves. We'll have to see later as it grows.....cute little plant!

    I agree with Amazon Joe: who knows! *shrugs shoulders* I'll plant it in my new tank I'm setting up and try to update as it grows. It almost looks like a terrestrial plant that germinated in water, once again who knows!
    I think since it's so tiny a bottom feeder must've uprooted it in the seller's tank and they didn't notice it in the water lettuce. I'm happy I got it though! Hooray for free plants!!!
