Limnophila sessiflora seems to look more like a bacopa with a more uniform structure. Limnophila aquatica almost the same idea seems to have a uniform leaf that splits into many parts like a snowflake.

That looks like more like a Myriophyllum.

Just taking a shot in the dark, and believe me I am in the dark... interested in what this is.

judging form how the nodes are spaced, i would think it was a Limnophila spp too. Definitely not sessaflora though.

I'm glad you posted about this, because I was recently wondering the same thing about mine! I saw some L. Gigantea on Aquabid (Lowcoaster, I believe) that looks just like what I have. I'd bought it from Swap n Shop a long time ago, but always wondered why it never got that rusty coloring I see in pictures. Mine starts out looking more like Cabomba, a bit spaced out between the sections of leaves, but as it gets closer to the top, then it becomes bushy. That's when I get to where I despise it! It grows TOO fast, lol.....

I wonder if the "true" L. Sessiliflora grow at a slower pace than the L. Gigantea.

I have that palnt, and to the best of my knowledge its called [BLlimnophilia indica[/B]. That is how it was sold to me anyways. It looks similar to Limnophila sp. 'Gigantea'.

I've had this plant for years and may have even been the one who sold it to ashappar and/or jade_dragon71 in the first place (most likely not, but I haven't seen anyone else sell it before and I sell it every once in a while). I have never been 100%. It is hard to determine through pictures, because it looks quite different if its grown in less optimal conditions.

I would be interested in a stem or two as well.

Please let me know if there are any more available.

Fosty, I actually got mine from Paula (Turbowagon), so there are probably more of us who have this "limnophila sessiliflora", since she seems to sell her tank trimmings whenever she has them. (Great plants, btw!) Now I wonder where she got hers, too.
