    I bought this at a local fish store but was only labled as aquatic plant. Any help in identifying this plant would be very much appreciated as I am unsure of where to plant it in my tank. Thanks so much in advance for helping in identifying this plant!

    I'm not sure. If I had to guess, maybe some sort of Ludwigia?

    I have no idea but the leaves are very pretty. It sure looks healthy. Maybe jetajockey can help. Alison

    The leaves make me think some kind of lily, but it isn't non aquatic as far as the leaves aren't struggling. I don't think it is ludwigia, though the potted picture looks similar to some types of it. Hopefully you can get a solid answer.

    Thanks everyone! I took the plants out of the fishbowl and decided to put them in my community tank today. Not knowing exactly what they are, I've placed them in the back of the tank until further notice. I really appreciate all of you in helping me! Meanwhile, the fish and shrimp will be enjoying these plants whatever they are.

    Looks like cherry hedge, not a true aquatic.
