I bought Eleocharis Parvula from the UK which they got it from Tropica and I got this:



I bought Eleocharis Parvula from my local pet store which they got from Singapore and I got this:



The first is shorter and without the small pellets (or whatever you call them) at the end of their leaves and the later are taller with the funny staff at the end of their leaves.

Why is this huge difference in the two? Will they turn out to be the same if I cut both of them short and let them regrow?

Thanks

bottom one was grown emersed more then likely to begin with. Cut it short and it will adapt to submersed life.

Will it adapt though and turn exactly like the one above or will it have the tendancy to grow taller with less green more brownish leaves?
