After losing my plants in a long battle with Cyanobacteria (I eventually won) I recently purchased a plant from PETCO (normally I would avoid their stuff but this plant stood out)
It has long streaks of what appear to by tiny purple flowers at the top. (see attached images)
It was completely submerged in water, not in a plastic container. The stems are bunched together and a clip holds them at the bottom.
What is it? I have seen many plants similar, but not with all these purple flowers. The leaves are much like Moneywort (Brahmi/Bacopa monnieri) or Ground Ivy, but again I have seen none with flowers.
Any help is appreciated. Hope 'yall are enjoying the holidays. Here's an alien:
In my tank the bottoms of the leaves turn a pinkish-red and the tops go green. It's a pretty nifty little plant. You can unbend that metal thing on the end and plant each little plant by itself with about an inch on every side. I think you'll be pleased with this little guy.
