Do you think this is Taiwan moss (Taxiphyllum alternans) ?
I bought it from a pet shop. It was sold as taiwan moss. Since I had my doubts I created this thread.Hello galettojm,
where does it come from?
IMO it isn't a Fissidens, because the leaves are not strictly arranged in 2 rows on the stem (i.e., not really distichous). Maybe any Vesicularia species.
Actually we are planing a collecting trip to Misiones province (Northeast of Argentina) maybe on March o April. Why don´t you join us ? Je !Hello Juan,
that sounds interesting! I could imagine that several water or amphibian mosses suitable for aquariums grow in Your country. How about a moss collecting trip?
Yes, we are trying to make an plant encyclopedia making emphasis on local plants. We are just getting started !!! jejejeHello Juan,
exciting! I mean, it's very important to save the informations about locality, collector and date of every collected plant.
1) and 2) may be the same species. Surely something of the Echinodorus grandiflorus group. Smaller plants of the true E. argentinensis (= E. grandiflorus in the narrow sense) doesn't have such cordate leaf bases on young leaves like this plant and have narrower leaves. The leaf stalks of the true E. argentinensis can be up to 1,5 m long.
Unfortunately a form of E. palaefolius is often sold as E. argentinensis. The flowers of this "pseudo-argentinensis" are much smaller.
