Cool. This has been floating around in the USA as "Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides". It looks rather different though.

Hi linus87,

One of our GSAS members was in San Francisco and visited the ADA distributor there, Aqua Forest Aquarium. He also picked up a 'mini' Hydrocotyle that was being sold as sp. 'Japan'. Here is what he wrote in our GSAS member chat:

I bought it as Hydrocotyle sp. Japan in San Francisco but I realize it is H. tripartita.
You might want to see if that is what you have as well.

Hi Seattle_Aquarist,
it is possible, but I bought this plant with this name.
I await the flower for classifying.

Better flower it to proove it.

i think people have been renaming certain plants as "japan" to make it sparkly and new. there are alot of misnamed variants out there that arnt so. i think we have all suffered from a plant that has been sold to us with a fancy name only to find out we could have bought it at petsmart. I once saw HC "japan" and as far as i know there is no such thing. so do your homework before you put a name/plant out there that does not exist.

i think it would be wise for you to flower it to find out for sure.

thanks
Elliot

Looks very similar to our native Hydrocotyle tripartita

linus87,
Thank you posting this thread. I have what I believe is the same plant for about a year now. Got mine from a hobbyist in California. Here is an old picture off center and a cutting in a holding tank. Pretty plant.

Doug
