That looks like glosso to me. I've never seen a 4 leaf clover that looks like that.

I think it's called Masilea something. I just planted a bunch in my tank.

well the four leaf clovers grow with 4 leafs like a clover emersed but when it is fully submergde it grows like this with one leaf .it does look like glosso but four leaf clover shamrocks have a lot bigger leaf.this is for sure not glosso it would not grow like this in only 1.3 wpg

So...I want this. Where would I get it? This forum, eBay, and Aquabid don't yield any results.

My clover is doing really good, I am quite happy with it. It definitely changes leaf shape because I bought it when it was grown emersed and it had four leaves. When I submerged it in the aquarium, every new leaf was singular and larger. I bought mine here:

Thanks for the two links. Does M. minuta have the same lowish light requirements as M. quadrifolia?

According to what I have read, it does.

I just got some from a member on the forum. It is already in its submersible growth form. I'm going to be using it in a 37g that is 22" tall.
