Can anyone identify this? I bought it the other day and I'm now thinking it may not be a fully aquatic plant. It came in a little pot with gravel. I'm in SE Asia if that helps (Vietnam).

Looks like Hydrocotyle umbellata. It grows in aquariums and as a house plant, so you can plant it both ways . By the way most plants in the hobby are not fully aquatic, instead they can grow either emersed or submersed, like H. umbellata.

Edit: Was doing some reading and am unsure now whether this is H. umbellata or H. verticillata. If anyone would like to confirm the difference between the 2 that would be great. I think verticillata is shorter. Nevertheless both can be grown in your aquarium.

Thanks man and excuse my late reply. I do think it is H. umbellata after looking at looking at images of both. They also sell them in water filled hanging pots here too.

No worries hahaha! Wasn't holding my breath! I found H. umbellatta in my garden, so I always have a free source I guess. Perks of living in SE Asia. The pots sound pretty neat.
How's it growing in your tank?
