I grow it outside in a small tray, it's fine, but does grow dense like the other species in the genus.

Have not given it much chance truth be told, but I do still have some and gave some to a few folks here.

Regards,
Tom Barr

What genus did you determine it to be?

Cool. The first pics looked like Sagittaria seedlings to me. I thought one summer I had found an unusual foreground-type plant growing in an ornamental pond at Cheekwood Gardens in Nashville. I observed them over the summer, and unfortunately they turned out to be seedlings of Sagittaria montevidendis, which was growing all around the margin.
