Knicolas thanks for all the help. I'll post a picture again when it grows out more

jkan0228 Almost all stem plants look like that when it's that small and emersed. I'd let it grow out for a few days or a week or two and it'll be a lot easier to ID

Centromochlus Looks mysteriously like Sphaerocaryum malaccense... but still too hard to tell at this point.

Knicolas Here it is 5 days later

about 1-2cm tall

GMYukonon24s It does look like Elatine hydropiper.

Knicolas I'll take a picture when I get home in a couple hours. As of now, it has four leaves and is growing vertically.

No, that's about the right size for Elatine hydropiper.

CPDzeke No, elatine hydropiper is even smaller than HC.

ThatGuyWithTheFish It could be Elatine hydropiper. Def. not glosso.

stealthypotatoes Glosso maybe?
03-03-2013 08:31 PM
Knicolas The leaves are more sharp than the HC. It's probably hard to tell right now. I'll take another picture in a couple weeks.

stealthypotatoes it should be dwarf baby tears
03-03-2013 02:45 AM
Fish Ed Oh I see.'s hard to tell from above, I'm guessing it's glossostigma
03-03-2013 01:26 AM
Knicolas Sorry. I'm talking about the tiny plant in the center of the pictures. Not the DHG or HC. You can see the leaves are larger than the HC.

Fish Ed You mean the grassy plant?

If so, it's dwarf hairgrass
