Hi I am having a very hard time telling the two apart.

I bought some narrow from avalon a while ago but at the time I has having a very hard time dealing with my tanks since ive been so sick.

Then I bought some extra narrow from mrkookm. They look so similar except since it was in bad conditions, the narrow is smaller and has less leaf per nodes. Im waiting to see if it starts growing better as I have a better and more consistant fert routine.

But in the mean time, I really dont know if they are both the same or is it just a weak narrow.

Is there anyway to definately tell which is which? Such as leaf per node or something else that doesn't change regardless of fer routine.

Look the same to me.

I think some called it this since the broad leaf is becoming so common.
Want some epic broad leaf for a few stems of the narrow?
Trade?

Hehe

The broad and the narrow seem like the only two species.

Some have sold the narrow as an easier to grow species.

In the old days, P stellata was considered the hardest plant to grow.
Once they saw they needed higher N and good CO2, they stopped having issues.

Higher nutrients can come from the water column or the sediment(eg ADA AS is very rich in N and P), or ideally.......both.

Easy to grow weed.
