Plant ID help needed


This might seem pretty basic, but to me they all look the same.

1. Dwarf Sagittaria (Sagittaria subulata)?



2. Water Hyssop (Bacopa monnieri)?



3. Water Wisteria (Hygrophila difformis)?



4. ??? (the tall rosette plants at the left)
5. ??? (The short stem plants at the foreground)

Thanks, the 4th does look like jungle val to me.

Nobody know the 5th? It's hard for me to find a picture that even look like it.

I pretty much guessed the same as others :P

1. Blyxa
2. Bacopa
3. Wisteria
4. Some type of Val?
5. This looks like Rotala rotundifolia or even dwarf bonsai (http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/my...ania_sp_Bonsai). Rotala and dwarf bonsai are often mistaken for each other so you might have to do a little more research! Rotala turns red under high light and yours might be green from low-light from where you got it.

Thanks guys.

They seem to be good choices for low tech tank. I had only one reasoning behind the purchase despite not know what they are. If they are cheap and not red, they probably can be grown easily enough. :p

Thanks.

Those at the right, which I assume to be some sort of bacopa, look like growing well. It kind of looks like mine except mine has rounded leaves.

Btw my tank is a 22G lit by 2 x 12W LED spotlight. It's only a few days old.

Looks like dwarf sag. stays short in sunlight but in an aquarium with lower light, the leaves can reach 12 to 13 inches. It shoots runners under the substrate.
