:/ I read that too, but I'm not looking for the mystery HM or the round leaved baby tears. Apparently there is a plant that goes under Hermianthus Glomeratus which is a narrower leaved species which will grow to a bush.
The photos on APC are certainly not of the round leaved giant baby tears many of us have now. :O The misnaming and whatever seems to have made it very confusing to ID 3 different plant species.

The narrow leaf is not an emmersed form either as i have round leaved giant baby tears growing emmersed as well. It does not branch and only sends out single side shoots when cut.

My point was though, that in the stores it still goes under the name Hemianthus micranthemoides so if you buy that it is the plant you are looking for. Look on that auction site and you'll find tons of it for sale.

In the D.C., Maryland, or NOVA area? Come check out The Greater Washington Aquatic Plants Association! www.gwapa.org
