I've got it. It's tits! One of my favorite plants. Nice and small, about the size of Bacopa caroliana in the whorl size. Sends out "runners" at the stem-base and looks real cool. Nice verigated leaves and red tops.

The ID is very suspect. Some say it is the true Rotala indica, or Lindernia from India... no settled name.

K thats sort of what i got about the ID being suspect. so it sends out sunners. i like that a bit more than cutting stems and re planting them.

But it's a darker green instead of lime yellow.
