    Ive had success with allot of them: (without root tabs, with ferts and medium lighting)

    -Amazon sword
    -Italian Val
    -val americana
    -Dwarf Pennywort
    -Lots of different stem plants
    -Temple plant

    And Ive herd good things about s-reppins however I have tried to order it 3 times now and received the wrong plant all 3 times! So I cant tell you myself.

    These are photos after they where first planted and they are still doing great.

    @MelloYello staurogeyne repens is a low growing carpeting plantthat is bushy. What you have pictured is hydrocotyle, most likely hydrocotyle triparta 'japan'.

    @RWP0505 most any plant will do well in sand, however it's a good idea to use plenty of root tabs to support growth.

    I actually recieved 2 plants of this japan stuff instead of s-repins, however it is doing a good job carpeting in my sand. I even have some pearling! :D

    Yes, almost any rooted plant is able to grow in sand.
