I believe it is Hygrophila Tripartite, because that's the stuff you got from Graham (Lamental Jester), which you also gave me a while back. Smile
Nice list of plants! Someone claim it before it grows away! Hahaha

i think the clover-like one is hydrocotyle tripartite, instead of hygrophila, isn't it? i just noticed because i always think of hygro difformis- watersprite- when i hear hygrophila, and the clover-like one shares almost nothing in common with watersprite

 king  - hygrophila tripartita. It has the smoother leaves. Where I noticed hydrocotyle tripartite has jagged/torn like leaves. Booboo'd on the last letter.

Hard to tell some of those mosses apart without seeing them in person. The bottom 3 species of the list are interesting but I'll give someone else a chance first. The first 4 species I have in abundance but they look nice.

Brazilian Pennywort (Hydrocotyle leucocephala) if was able to do this I'd keep it. Im not getting good luck with it. Stay rooted unless I put a plant anchor on 1 end in the ground. Its also great floater plant. Im not into floaters.

That would be okay. I am on a moss kick, seeing what I can grow and what I can not. From what I see the penny wort will look cool in the front corner of my 140. I've been thinking about it since you 1st posted. I'll PM you an address.

I had the same problems really. The only plant I don't have is the moss. (I have echonidoris that may or may not be Amazon swords.) I was thinking about taking it for the moss. Have any extra? Could even send it in a baggie and a reagualr envelope for a 46 cent forever stamp.

cyclops .oO At this rate I am going to be able to check out every aquatic plant available in no time and at the fraction of the retail cost. You know what? I would like to take a moment and express appreciation for this forum, this thread, and aquarium coop for making that possible. I dont know how many times I've went to a LFS and wnted to try plants out only to shy away because i thought i would kill it and didnt want to spend the $5-$6 on it or getting a couple bunches for $20 only to find out the plant isn't for my set up. I dont worry much about killing a plant I get free. Not only do I have the best ways to get neat new plants , I also have an outlet to get rid of plants instead of dumping $$$ into the garbage.
