Bought some plants tonight. I'm pretty sure the stuff in the background is Cabomba (sp?), but I'm not sure about the one that I have circled. The guy at the LFS said it was Ludwigia, but I don't believe it is. Anyone know?

I've seen this at my LFS, I think it's Green Hedge, and it may be a terrarium plant, but don't take my word for it, see if someone more knowledgeable posts on this.
And yes, the plant behind it is Cabomba.

Bumpity bump bump!

Anyone else know anything about this plant? Is it green hedge? I've been trying to search for Green Hedge with minimal success. As you can imagine, the words "green" and "hedge" lead to a lot of non-aquarium related sites.

then try adding "aquarium" or "aquatic" to the search :P
looks like an alternanthera species to me, possibly bettzickiana.

The plant is indeed Green Hedge----AKA Alternanthera ficoidea. It is a tererrium plant very common in LFS's ---it will die soon.

Sorry
