Stopped by the LFS where i bought the plants today. Whoever ordered the plants finally labeled them and you are 100% correct on your identification!

Thanks again!

AzFishKid was right about the Lobelia cardinalis. All the new growth was nice and bright green.

13B-RX3 Does anyone have any experience with Nesaea 'red' (if that is in fact what it is)? It seems that most of the info on this plant claims it is very demanding and not really worth the trouble. Any input?

13B-RX3 Thank you! I have some reading to do now!

13B-RX3 Well, it's time for the next fun filled installment of name that plant! Stopped by the LFS today and i could not help myself. Of course the sales person had no idea what the plants were. Any help would be great


Plant one, labeled as rotala indica so i think i am in the clear on that one.

Plants 2&3 were not labeled. When i asked i was told "purple plant" lol.

Thanks in advance everyone!

Jeffww Looks like hemigraphis sp. Not an aquatic.

Although the thick stem looks lobelia-ish

ADJAquariums Wow, i think he is, silly me, i should have known better than to contradict AZ, i don't get how AZ is so good at this.

sublime Looks like AZ is right again....

13B-RX3 Sorry guys, i am sure i could have avoided some confusion with better pictures to begin with. Thanks to everyone for their reply's!

OVT I have learned the hard way not to contradict AzFishKid's plant IDs

I guess the only real way to figure this out is by another picture

13B, think another picture is possible?
