Hi Gomer,

I received a plant that looks very similar (albeit darker) to your AG3.jpg during a plant gathering last Sunday. Guy Oei, owner of Albany Aquarium here in NorCal, saw the plant and identified it as L hippuroides. He imports from OA and the plant is of course, in their catalog. It was acknowledged that it's challenging to simply look at these Limnos' submersed growth and make a definitive judgement on species. I'll grow it out and see what happens. It is quite large and exhibits extremely purplish/nearly blackish coloration. :shock:

We shall see Jim! I did a near-complete teardown of that setup on Wednesday and will be running it quite a bit leaner than previous. I'll keep you posted... let us know what your hippuroides does. :D

Erik,

in your tank this plant is going to turn green like everything else :))

I have the L. Hippuroides from albany also, it is stuggling emersed right now, but hopefully I will get it to flower.

As Carlos mentioned I have gotten the orginial 'Gratiola' to flower, and I matched it to this picture, and stuck with the name Gratiola.

However consensus seems to be these are closely related forms of Limnophila.

Jim.
