Second one is definitely not a water plant. The first one looks like a bog plant. Neither can be totally immersed in water, but prefer moist soils.

First one looks like it is possibly a Bacopa species. IF it is it will grow.

The second one is definately not aquatic.

I would have put my money on the first being a bacopa caroliniana whilst the seond appears to be a poorly draceanea.

Second is a drac. First is a bacopa, but I'm not sure that it is a fully aquatic plant. Some Bacopas like marshy, moist soil, bog-like.

hello, good day!

first pic, im sure its a bacopa specie, not sure if it is caroliniana or australis. I think its a submerged form.
second pic, definitely not an aquatic plant, i dont know the name but i have one on my moms garden that looks like it. a terrestrial plant indeed.

the third pic, i think its Lilaeopsis brasiliensis.

hope that helps.. :) happy planting!

I was hoping somene would figure out what they was, it looks awesome. Well have to find out more about it. If it is aquatic and will grow like that in my tanks it might be exactly what I want in my breeder tanks when I am ready.

thewhityfang, where in "world" did you dfind it? :D
