Uncommon carpeting plants?
 
Hi guys, I was wondering if there are some low growing uncommon carpeting plants. I know HC, Glosso, Marsilea are widely used, but does anyone know any uncommon carpeting plants available on online? Thanks.

Some weird carpet plants include water wisteria. In high light, it creeps over the substrate instead of growing vertically.

Is uncommon.

Hygrophila sp. 'Araguaia'

photos here

looks tall and leggy when grown emersed so stick with submersed for best carpeting results

Thanks so much for the advice guys! I would never expect this many people responding within a day. I think I might try Hemianthus micranthemoides. Any tips? And would excel help grow this plant? Thanks once again.

bacopa australis. Low light plant but under high light it will creep. Took over my gravel and a few floating pieces ended up taking over half my tank. Serious weed.
