Would someone please tell me the difference between the size of Marsilea minuta and the crenata? I would like to buy some of the smaller one.

Aquariumplants.com will have the crenata for sale next week, but he said he's not familiar with the "minuta". Could it be the same thing?

Thank you.

I don't know about minuta, but the crenata I have is a little bigger and taller than glosso. I've also got some of another type (quadrifolia?) and it's about twice the size in crenata in each direction and can be quite a bit taller.

I don't much like the big one, but it does tend to throw multi-lobed leaves more often so I kept a little tucked in the back. The crenata's ok, but still a little bigger than I'd like. If there's something smaller, that would be best (unless your tank is huge).
