Hi guys I’m newer to the planted scene and was wondering if you guys could help me identify these few plants. Also by the leaves that are the growths shooting downward? And how do I clip these to grow more?

Top pic- the green on the left is Hygrophila difformis (Wisteria) which is presently converting from emmersed form to the shape it takes underwater

Next plant to the right is Ludwigia repens or possibly Ludwigia rubin. The growths shooting downward are areal roots. Its normal, some species do it more than others. You can pinch them off at the stem or just leave them

The floaters on the far right, best guess is Amazon Frogbit but it looks a little strange, might be something else

The clumps of grass down front looks like Eleocharis parvula AKA dwarf hair grass. There are a couple other varieties which are all similar, main difference is size, so it might be a different variety

Floater looks like dwarf water lettuce. If top of leaves are smooth that’s what it is, there are a few species of salvinia that sort of look like that but tops of leave will have a spiked surface to them.
