    I posted this up on APC too, but i thought I would cross post here to see if anyone knew what plant this was, I didnt see anything in plant finder that looked like it, my guess is a staurogyne or hygrophila?

    the whole leaf has a purple sheen to it, with dark purple veins and a dark purple stem, the green parts are a little silvery.

    Edit, took some pictures of it in my tank under the lights, it shows the purple better.

    Wow, thats really nice. Hopefully, it takes to submerged life. Could be the next "it" plant.

    Looks awesome! Did you find them near a lake or a river? I may have to go look around here and see what we have natively.

    I was hoping for an update too Pebes, perhaps with another *bump* we will get one.

    Hey, sorry didnt realize people were still looking at this post.

    The plant ID, I believe it to be Veronica 'Americana', it grew just fine submerged for several months, but it lost all the things that made it look nice with its submerged form compared to its emersed form.

    It was no longer purple hue'd, the plant elongated, the leaves got bigger and more round, it looked like a giant bacopa kinda. Nice plant, but I dont think I will be using it in an aquascape any time soon.


    It is in the very right edge of this picture, the lime yellow plant with pearling, right behind the PERSICARIA SP. 'SAO PAULO'
