Today, I was exploring a couple lakes here. It is dry season here so the water level was very low --and most plants that are usually aquatic are now on wet, sandy soil.

There were only three species of plants that I could find growing well into the water. A couple patches of Bacopa monnieri, a few stems of scarlet, nutrient starved Hygrophila polysperma, and loads of Hydrocotyle sp that seem to be pretty close to verticellata. The plant grows along deeply buried runners, shooting out 2-3 inch petioles with umbrella shaped leaves.

I decided to take some of this Hydrocotyle and test it in my own tanks to see what happens. :)
