Wild Plant ID


While fishing this morning I saw this plant growing in healthy large bunches. It has little orange bead things on it. I thought it would look good in my tank. Any ideas on the ID? I know this pond has Cabomba Caroliniana and Cobomba Purple, but this one is much smaller and a little darker than Caroliniana.





One more, Sunset Hygro right?:

The first one looks like hornwort and the second looks like hygro sunset to me. I believe the little orange beads on the first plant are crayfish eggs. Don't quote me on that though, maybe someone else will have a better idea on that subject than me.

Crayfish hold onto their eggs just like shrimp.

I'm from NY but have been in PA all weekend and happened to notice some very healthy looking hornwort growing in the lake by my house. I too was thinking about taking some home. I would not put it directly in a tank. I was thinking of growing it out in a bucket and maybe treating it with some alum to get rid of snails and maybe some potassium permaganate as a friend of mine suggested. It looks fantastic but I am a little worried about parasites and other critters.

those little orange balls are antheridium, the male reproductive bodies. if you look close, you should see green oval looking things near the orange balls. they would be archegonium, the female reproductive bodies.

Thanks for clearing that up. I was told by a fisherman a few years ago that they were crayfish eggs.
