I had ordered this plant through my LFS earlier this week and just want to be sure it is correct. The supply list labeled it as proserpinaca palustris. Either this is a different plant, emersed grown (seems unlikely looking at the pictures online), or the growing conditions were less than optimal for the plant to show its colors and remain healthy. The new leaves and stems seem to be showing a bit more red since it is in direct light and iron is also dosed. I can't seem to find any pictures of it that matches the current leaves.

When it was put in.


New growth picture from earlier today, my camera washed out some of the color.

It appears to be labeled correctly.
That plant grow different thickness in the leaf shape depending on the light.

But the jagged leaf edges appear to make it label correctly.

Awesome, I'm glad that it was labeled correctly, the supplier doesn't seem too good about it. It will be much easier to control than the sunset hygro it replaced. Hopefully it will grow in looking nicer than it does right now. Thanks.
