Could anyone tell me something more about this plant? Maybe a picture? Any experience you want to share

Thank you,
Sven

I've seen this plant, it looks similar to Lobelia but it is more robust and with prominent white-veins throughout the leaves.

Sven. I have not read any accounts of this species' use submersed, aside from Robert Hudson's previous post, so I can't reference any sources. But to your right is a photo of it (most likely of an emersed specimen) from Oriental Aquarium, scanned by Charles Niautou.

Do grow it and report back with your experience. [smilie=t:

I grew it a long time ago and got bored with it. I do not think it is all that attractive submersed. I think it grows much like Rorippa aquatica or Proserpinaca palustris, (slow with lots of light) also North American marsh/bog plants. You have done well with Proserpinaca palustris Sven, so you may not have any trouble with this plant.
