Plant ID

What plant is this? It came with a bunch of other ones I ordered but pretty sure it's none of them.

Hmmm...doesn't look either of those when I Google images.

The shape and design looks like ludwiga 'rubin' but the color does not. Maybe with time it will change color. It's definitely not 'Bihar'.

Look closer. One of the leaves is just showing the pinnatifid growth (the deep, rounded teeth). As the plant grows, they will become more evident. Definitely not a Ludwigia, in any case.

Not sure, but if its not the above my only thought would be H. 'Brown'?
But I doubt that tbh.

Re: Plant ID

Maybe...I think you and Tom both have it. I also know it looked like Atlantis when the leaves were smaller, which came from Bart

Its growing very well regardless.

Your plant.
1. small tooth on leaf
2. whitish, conspicuous center vein
Also note olive green to rosy coloration, weedy habit


Image pulled from Google.
Note same characters, and how on leaves on immature plants/certain conditions only have teeth near the stem.


Another.

Very nice catch tinanti. Did not see the tooth. I'd have to agree this is bihar. Really cool plant and it gets HUGE (8" diameter huge). It outgrew all my tanks before I gave it all away.

I sort of see what your talking about, not too defined yet but it definatley has the beginnings of a toothy leaf structure... Good eyes
