ok having trouble uploading pics here hope this works



my daughter just had to be in the pic lol, so i got 3 mroe species today no clue what any of them are, i took a risk and bought them at the grocery store... yes i know. but the tanks were all clean and the plants super cheap. didnt pay over 3$ for any of them but they had no info on them and the older guy had no idea about them. so i need id help on them all. the first pic was potted plant with wool and what appeared to be dirt, thinking im going to see alot of die off from that one down the road. the second i think is narrow leaf ludigia? and the third i have no idea. by the way the floaters i plopped down today have started to go towards the light, looks kinda funny with all of the stems having crazy bends in them but i like it ^^

First, kids steal the shots... cute kid and all though.

Second, the grocery store? You do know that lettuce, celery and brocoli, while they might look interesting, will not thrive in the fish tank.... right?

Yup, you can even save a step. Open them in paint right from the phone directory, save to the hard drive once the image is reduced (to 25% is about best if you are using the iphone 4S), then upload them normally to the site.

Well, they're not vegetables.

The third looks very similar to one that I picked up yesterday... my plant sheet had all four that I bought labelled as "plants"... always nice when the rep has no idea, or if they did are too lazy to write it down.

I'll be posting my four shortly, you can have a shot at IDing them too, I just haven't gotten a round to it yet.

Number one looks like wisteria.

On the plants, photos from earlier in this thread. First is Wisteria as mentioned, second I would also agree on Rotala, and third I am not sure. It is not a crypt, there is no rhizome (we can see the roots here). I'm tempted to suggest it may be a terrestrial, but not sure.
