A few IDs


Hello all, need help with a few IDs since as usual LFS only knows prices and not names. I think I identified a few correctly but need some peace of mind.
This is Didiplis Diandra I assume?


This is Ludwigia ovalis? I think?


The next two pictures I thought was Didiplis Diandra? It is green with reddish hue below the leaves. I think it is Rotala Occultiflora?


Same plant. One in the middle. Apologies about the mess.

I just bought the next one and have no idea. Cannot find it in the APC database. The store recently received this so it may be in the emersed form?


--------------
And for anyone interested. This is what the plant in the 1st picture (if it is Didiplis Diandra) looked like when I first got it (around 26/1/2013), located in the middle. It is probably the emersed form of the same plant (whatever it is). All it needed, as well as the plant next to it, was a trim so it can start growing. Too bad I have very little experience with trimming so I waited around a month before I did it. So in conclusion, trimming/pruning is your friend.


Sorry for the long thread and thanks.

That 3rd one looks a lot like rotala nanjenshan to me. But could be Bangladesh.

1. A form of Rotala rotundifolia... maybe. R. 'Singapore'
2. Bacopa caroliniana
3. Rotala 'nanjenshan'
4. Maybe weird Pogostemon erectus?

Try refreshing? Maybe the server was busy.

Thank you. I thought it was didplis diandra when I first got it. It just finally started growing (no CO2)

Thank you very much. Seems like you're spot on.
However the last one is a mystery? Anybody knows? I'm floating it now to hopefully develop some roots although it does not look like it will grow much if any roots. The leaves are tiny.

Something for you to see. I do not think this is normal for aquatic plants? The leaf was half dead as you see.


Btw I do not know the name of this plant also so :P A staurogyne or hygrophilia?

it will still grow a few set of leaves from its emersed form. After adapting, it will grow submersed leaves. That plant is very cheap and is always sold at our lfs.

Welcome. I love plants that I can distinguish them from leaves only. :3
But I'm weak on identifying mosses.
