    I got some freebies with some rotala green I just purchased. Can anyone tell me what they are? I'm thinking:

    1) L aromatica or L glandulosa
    2) maybe Ranunculus inundatus? Total guess.
    3) No clue, but it doesn't look like the rest of the R. green and it was seperated when shipped.

    When Was The Last Time You Had Your Eyes Checked?

    Hi,

    The first and uncharacteristically clear photo is definitely not Limnophila aromatic or Ludwigia glandulosa, it kind of looks like anemic Hygrophyla polysperma "Ceylon," though it is not. Most likely Rotala Goias or some variant, even Rotala macrandra in need of some love. ;)

    The second fuzzy photo in keeping with what we have come to expect, could be Ranunculus Inundatus. It is more likely Water Wisteria, Hygrophila difformis plant it, float it the stuff grows well and easily. :)

    Should fuzzy photo number two be Ranunculus Inundatus, that is a good find and is right up there with Tonina spp. in keeping at least for me, likes an acidic substrate, low KH, under 4-dKH, way under for me, likes CO2 and iron. :rolleyes:

    The third fuzzy picture looks like Rotala rotundifolia.

    Planted pictures of plants 1 and 3. Plant 3 really doesn't resemble my rotala rotundifolia in any way.

    Glad You Got Your Eyes Fixed

    Hi,

    I still think the defuzzed pictures of plant three are of Rotala rotundifolia. :) The blur of the photos are just enough to keep me from being certain. :confused:

    I was tempted to think number three might be Limnophila sp 'mini' a close relative of limnophila aromatic, but the leaves are not jagged.

    I forgot all about this post. Finally got a hold of the seller a while back. Thanks, spam bot, for reminding me about it. :rolleyes:

    Plant 1: Ludwigia arcuata

    Plant 2: Ranunculus inundatus

    Plant 3: Hemianthus micranthemoides

    You Are Welcome Spam Bot!

    Hi,

    Okay I will agree photo #1 could be Ludwigia arcuata. :)

    Photo #2 is a good find if that is Ranunculus Inundatus as I say a nice plant a little finicky but once established does well. :)

    As for photo #3, I suppose it could be Pearl Weed, Hemianthus micranthemoides or perhaps Baby Tears, Micranthemum umbrosum, this plant grows taller and less compact with larger stem sections between the leaf nodes than Hemianthus micranthemoides. I just do not see it, I am not sure I can tell, so I will stick with my original guesses until Gerryd or time proves me wrong. :p

    Two to four weeks stabilizing and growing out will tell the tail for all of them. :gw

    If you could post photos say Saturday, 4 September, perhaps get someone not legally blind to take the photos. :eek:
