I don't know the species of seeds I used. Any idea?

Hi @Plant4Fish,

Welcome to APC!

Those are 'seedling leaves' and likely look nothing like the leaves as the plant gets its 2nd and 3rd set of leaves. Post this in a couple of weeks when the seedling have a couple more sets of leaves on them. -Roy

Thanks! They are 5 days old only. Will wait until a few more sets of leaves grow in.

How about this pic? Am worried they might not be truly aquatic plants. They have been underwater now for 12 days.

Looks like Hygrophila sp. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSMZZwHHeEs

The last time I saw this subject - seeds growing into plants in aquarium - the consensus was that those are a scam. Has that changed, and some legitimate aquatic plant seeds become available? I hope that is the case, because it would be much easier to plant a carpet with seeds than with tiny little plantlets.

The seeds aren’t labeled. You don’t know what you’ll get, so it’s still a scam.

My seeds were a freebie with a plant order from LFS. He forgot to save the label and had given me a handful in a zip lock baggie. He had a gallon jug of them.
