Hi All,

I was given some seeds stating it is HC Cuba. I planted and grew them in the aquarium, however they don't seem to be HC Cuba. Can you help me ID the plant.

Thank you,
George
Hi George,

Most of the seeds sold 'online' are not what they claim to be, they are Hygrophila polysperma and that is what your pictures seem to show as well. Hygrophila polysperma is classified as a "Noxious Weed" by the UDSA. It is extremely invasive and illegal in many states. If you chose to keep the plant I strongly suggest always composting any trimmings, do not throw in toilet, disposal, etc where it can get into the water. -Roy
