Question Help ID These 4 Plants - TIA :)

There's only a few stems of each, I have them numbered. In this first pic there's some Lud. repens in the very back left. Disregard that it's different than the ones in question.





Here's a couple more pics of 1, 3, and 4 in a different tank:

1.



3.



4.



Thanks in advance.

1. Moneywort?
2. Ludwigia ovalis
3. Ammania gracilis
4. Ludwigia glandosa?

You didn't happen to get all these plants from Petco did you? Because I've seen all of these plants there.

Indeed I did! None of which were labeled. I was having a hard time narrowing down the two Ludwigia, but I think you're right.

Not sure if number 1 is Moneywort though, the leaves on mine are more long and thin rather than round. Honestly they're in such bad shape it's hard to tell. They'd obviously been laying down because they were growing all sideways and twisted :/

Thanks a lot for the help


*Edit: After a bit more googling, I did see some moneywort that resembles what I have, with more long slender leaves. Probably due to the way it was grown or something. Thanks again.

#2 is not Ludwigia ovalis, which has alternate leaves; this has opposite leaves. It looks like it's probably L. repens x L. arcuata.

That means a hybrid cross of the two species?
