found in a rock quarry in berks co., pa. has serrated leaf edges and thick fleshy stock with roots. the stock is segmented. i believe it propogates by runners as offshoots of a larger one i got also has rooted segments. was covered with algae and mud when i got it so i was surprised by the nice purplish hue in the leaves when i got it home and washed it off.

If anyone ever has any problem reducing the size of a graphics file, send me an email about it, giving number of photos, original size etc. I can resample jpgs very easily. I usually get them down to 6 inches long and 72 dpi for Internet work. I usually compress them to about 50 to 75k and they still look good.

yes it does steve, except the stalks are not purple. maybe if it grew out of the water they would be purple? if you look at the very bottom of the picture, you can see roots growing at the highest visible segment. would a terrestrial plant do this? since being in the aquarium the leaves have lost their purple hue, but the plant itself is still very healthy. the runoff where i found it doesnt dry up. so maybe it is a plant that is supposed to be emmersed for the leaves to stay purple? or in a very moist(boglike) area? right behind it in the picture is one of the offshoots i was talking about. the leaves are thick and a really bright green. thanks for all the input.
