Iím completely baffled... [emoji53]

A few days ago I noticed a few pale, almost yellow leaves among my Cryptocoryne parva. First there were a couple, and then half a dozen different plants with similar leaves. Since no serious change in water quality, fertilizers or lighting have taken place, I was confident that the plants should not be distressed in any way. So I decided to closely watch them for a few days.

Upon closer examination, I realized these are completely different plants. Clearly, hitchhikers. The veins on the leaves are prolongated and stretch from bottom to tip. They also have pinkish spots. In a way, they resemble Blyxa japonica, but very tiny ones. See close ups below.

But where did they come from? What kind of plants are they? I did have Blyxa japonica, but I removed all of it at least six months ago. And B. japonica never sent such tiny offshoots.

Has anyone seen something similar to these? Please help ID.

def looks like japonica or dwarf sag of some sort. But my money is on the japonica shoots. Ive experienced small ones like this that stay small for weeks.

Iím really curious to see what they become.

If B. japonica, could they have just hybernated under soil for months to only come out now?

That i dont know, possibly, but im not sure on it.

Since japonica has a tiny little "rhizome" like a crypt does, it is entirely possible.

Ever since I first saw Ludwigia sphaerocarpa in one of Tom Barrís (@plantbrain) tanks, Iíve been searching for it. Finally found a couple of stems from Liquid Creations (@Bartohog).

As it happens when you have only one tank and limited space, but you have to make space for another favorite plant, it involved minor rescaping. [emoji4]
