Hi folks,

I recently got interested in live plants, got a bunch from my LFS, but they had no idea about them and couldn't tell me the names.

Will do some research on caring for these plants once i know the names.

My guess is (from google search) I have anubias (type?), ludwigia (type?), african fern, green tiger lotus, micro sword, crypt (type?)

Since you haven't gotten any replies, I will although I am new to planted tanks also. You really didn't pose a question though I think you might be looking for confirmation of what you listed. I for one, do not see an "African Fern" (Bolbitis) in your pictures. Secondly, I don't know what you have tied to what appears to be a piece of wood (second group of pictures) but I think it should be planted in the gravel/sand. The first picture is of an Anubis but I have no idea what species. Sorry I can't be of anymore help.

thnx jackal, you may have a point about not posing a question though i thot the thread title was it, lol

let me be more clear and say that all the names i listed were my guesses, i was hoping some folks here would tell me the proper names.

yes, the plant tied to a piece of wood should be in the gravel, but since it started looking a goner when i had it in the gravel, i tied it to the tip of a driftwood for it to get more light & avoid bulb rot (perhaps i planted it too deep)

thnx indian fern, for your reply.

parrot's feather looks quite different from what i can google.
Liliaeopsis looks like bulls eye, i dont know if common name is brazilian micro sword?
about Dwarf sag, my leaves look more narrow than regular dwarf sag, but could be due to lights?

Some of these look like they were grown emersed. You'll probably see some die off as new submersed leaves grow. They will look a bit different then.
I'll take a stab at a few. Not sure of the proper names for all.
1 Anubias barteri
2 Crypt. maybe Lutea?
3 ?
4 Lobelia cardinalis (cardinal plant)
5 Micro Sword (Echinodorus tenellus)
6 Sword?
7 Sword?
8 lotus
9 Alternanthera reineckii ?
