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 [emoji16]. 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.
