Hi everyone,

I'm a new member to this forum, and am excited to be a part of the aquarium hobby community! I need some help with identifying a couple of plants that I purchased a few days ago (please see the first image, large leafy plant in the center). The LFS said this plant is a type of Ludwigia, but after doing some research I didn't come across any Ludwigia species that looks similar to this plant. I would love to know the name so I can research and ensure it is taken care of properly.

As I'm new to the forum, thought I'd post a photo of my current tank as well.

Thank you for your help!
Hi AquaHobbyist,

Welcome to TPT!

It really doesn't look like a Ludwigia species; possibly Alternanthera ficoidea.
