A little background first, I bought about 15 extremely small clipping of water lettuce a few months back. About 8 of those that came in looked very different so I I placed those in a dedicated tank to grow them out with grow lights and ferts. Now with the plants looking mature of love to get an ID on it. I'm thinking they are water hyacinths but I'm unsure as they don't flower.

Definitely water hyancinths. I had them cover the entire surface of my tub pond.

Water hyacinths. I always wanted them. I can put dozens of water lettuce with my turtles but they would eat them all.
They don't sell them here but I always see them in the botanical gardens.
I want some so badly.

We are from two very different countries. I don't even have to ask where you are from to know that.
Thank you either way, I really appreciate the gesture. I would love some though.
Your plants are growing nicely.

That would complicate things for sure. But you are most welcome
