i kind of got these names drilled into me. once you cross the domain where plants no longer have a common name, ur in trouble o_O

Most of these guys are small plants. and for things like the cabomba, I only keep one stalk. same with the wisteria, and also because it's a variegated variation.

Before i've only seen pics of h. Augustofolia online. And I was like... ooh I like those leaves~ I want one.
But when I saw it in person for the first time at petco I was like : omgbbq what is this gigantisaurus?!

oh, I did forget one: Limnophilla aromatica XD

Following is a link from Aquariumplants.com showing the Latin name for the Star Grass they sell. Thought you might like to know.
Heteranthera Stargrass (Heteranthera zosterfolia)

oooh thanks! I'll attempt to remember it XD
With these plants I think its due to the factbetter known by their common name that there us too little usage of their sci name to make it worthwhile rememebering :D I mean if I was like Hygrophylla difformis or something people will be like wha...?
