Question

Plant ID help, Petco mystery basket...tank


Sooo after ripping on my local Petco for the algae-fest that was their plant tank.. someone cleaned it up! It actually looks decent enough to consider buying from, now.. if only I knew wtf all the plants were (ALL) are listed as "assorted plants" I am starting to look some up online but would love your help, her's a spam of photos (sorry for quality dog on the leash puling=blur) if you could give common or scientific name that'd be very helpful, thank you!

I still plan on ordering some plants online.. I may set up a 'wtb' thread in the appropriate forum soon to see if I get any sellers ^^

I think the center broad-leaf in the last two photos is amazon sword?

edit:
I think the bottom right in photo #4 is water wisteria(?)
Is the stem with many small leaves in the right in the 2nd photo "money wort" (photo makes them look yellow)?

1st front left is bacopa, behind it a little is some type of Ludwiga, bottom right corner is Wisteria.

For 2.99 a bunch there are a ton there that are easy growers and well worth the 2.99 to get if you like the looks of them.

Ok thank you. I don't think I can use westeria, my lighting is low and I believe that needs medium. Will have to look into the other two.

Second pic has Clinopodium brownei to the left (should smell minty and have a square stem) and Lysimachia nummularia to the right. I don't know common names very well.

Actually some of their tubes are aquatic plants, and most of them have a small circle near the bottom of the label that will say fully submersible or not. I broke down and bought the Amazon Swords in the tubes and I am beginning to see new growth. In the tubes, I have seen: wisteria, amazon swords, anubias, and java ferns, all in various sized tubes. And I have seen downoi (??? helferi i think it is), dwarf hair grass, and a couple others in the envelope looking packages as well.

Lysimachia nummularia is also known as Golden Lloydiella or Creeping Jenny

Wisteria will grow under low light but as it grows it will drop it's lower leaves to try and reach for more light.
