Wrong hairy plant, Jen, BP is in the background. I don't recognize any though without looking them up myself.

3 looks to be Hygrophilia corymbosa.

This is how I lurk

That fist plant looked, to me, to not be aquatic... Something about the "hairs" on the stem mainly. I decided to go looking tonight and see as I had a discussion about hairy land plants with my daughter and I casually mentioned that I didn't think there were water plants that had hairs like that. The plant we were looking at I couldn't identify but this first plant has the same sort of hair structure on the stem (trichomes).

I looked up what functions those hairs perform on plants and almost none are necessary in plants that grow under water. Almost every reference that involved looking for "hairy aquatic plants" involved results that included algae of various sorts, hair algae the most predominant.

Looking for images of aquatic plants that have hairs like that came up blank.

Perhaps I am off base with this but I do wonder if it is a true aquatic plant? Many times terrestrial plants are sold as aquatic and buyers are none the wiser even when they die of, perhaps sometimes as long as months later though. They, of course, believe it was their lacking skills that killed the plant.

Anyway, that wasn't much help but I got to ramble on a bit.

Jeff.
