Guess that plant 2! (This one is harder)


If you didn't see the first post, this is a photograph of a plant leaf taken with a microscope, try to guess what it is!


Good luck on this one, happy guessing!

The magnification is 400x, it is a section of a single leaf. No right guesses yet

It is indeed ludwigia repens! The cell structure is weird, looks like a jigsaw puzzle. And I'm just taking some leaves from my trimmings OVT, no need to worry (;
