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

13B, think another picture is possible?

Looks like hemigraphis sp. Not an aquatic.

Although the thick stem looks lobelia-ish

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

Thanks

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!

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?

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

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!
