The B. caroliniana has a larger leaf, with more of a pointed outer end, though it isn't pointed per se. Also, B. monnieri is a lighter, more consistent "green" in color.

Here's a closer look at B. caroliniana....

Bacopa monieri has more nodes spacing and rounder leaf thus the name money-like . Bacopa caroliana has denser nodes and pointed leaves with red shades when on top. Moneiri grows an awesome flower when it is outside the water.

the B. monnieri don't have round leaves, but the ends (away from where they join the stem) are round.
