I apologize in advance for all the photos. I have been wondering a long time if these were or could be aquatic. Most of them were harvested by me from rain runoff ditches that at this time were dry but ground was mushy wet. There are two plants that I was given by my parents and the red sword I picked up for 3$ at pet supermarket. If you notice anything aquatic either in the foreground or background of my photos, please do not hesitate to mention it. All info is appreciated!
If anyone can help me ID all of these or as many as possible, it will help me learn quite a bit! Oh, is there a website that exists with tons of photos of aquatic plants showing both emersed and submersed leaf structures? If it helps, I live in South Florida. Jupiter to be precise.
First is this interesting plant. Is it a form of bacopa? I am unsure but it is screaming aquatic for some reason. http://img826.imageshack.us/img826/275/003scx.jpg
Anything aquatic here? http://img267.imageshack.us/img267/233/004vxv.jpg
I took samples of this plant in particular. Same as previous photo http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/2894/005pr.jpg
This one looks easy to me. I think I have seen it before somewhere http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/4566/006ggv.jpg
General shot of this plant I cant seem to ignore. Pretty http://img841.imageshack.us/img841/7219/007utc.jpg
Im not really sure this photo is helpful at all. Kinda blurry http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/8835/008idd.jpg
I took a sample for this cause it absolutely has to be aquatic! I hope... http://img267.imageshack.us/img267/5264/009sj.jpg
This is most likely an invasive weed. It has sprung up everywhere down here and while pretty, I doubt its aquatic. I just took a shot to be 100% sure. http://img442.imageshack.us/img442/2739/010tm.jpg

Sorry about the algae. I am trying to get the flora and fauna way up in here in preparation for my OEBT shrimp that should hopefully ship Monday. This plant was given to me and before I planted it i wanted to be sure it is true aquatic. Its not a sword so its gotta be a crypt right? http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/3986/012wet.jpg
Same situation as the above photo. Took this cutting from a bunch my parents picked up somewhere. Not sure what it is. http://img809.imageshack.us/img809/3900/013kny.jpg
One more of them http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/88/014ss.jpg
I picked this sword up at Pet supermarket (they are only place locally to carry purigen). I paid 3$ for it and figure that was a bargain. Anyone know what type of sword this is? http://img213.imageshack.us/img213/655/015ll.jpg
Check out the hydrocotyl I plucked from a customers backyard! Huge, and since it is a weed here, I was doing them a favor. Win/Win http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/3607/016yem.jpg
