I would say the other way that the L aromatica sold in the hobby is not really aromatica, but something closely related. Dennis Wong has written an article on L aromatica and identified it as NGO Om. There is a link in his article that describes the differences among three closely related species. I have one growing in my tank submerged, and another one by the window sill immersed, both originated from an Asian grocery store. The purple cone flowers is positive ID of aromatica. Mine is lime green, not red, but that can change when it grows tall. Strong red is not expected as I don’t have high light and don’t want to induce nitrogen limitation. It’s a beautiful plant regardless with a bonus of an edible kitchen herb.
