Hi sin, I'm not sure what's the common name of this plant, I too can't find it in the net. What I know it is refer as Glossostigma elatinoides, or shorter Glossostigma, or even shorter just Glosso

Hmm...I got mine thru a local hobbyist. you can try your local LFS, but I think best is to get from hobbyist in your area, should be much cheaper and in good condition.

By the way, I'm about to update Day 3 of the posting the pics soon

P.S. want some of my plant?...haha could be difficult to send to you though, if you are far from me :|

Haha, I'm half way round the earth from you....I'm sure you can find it in the US....:)

Another, try searching for ADA (Aqua Design Amano) hobbyist/store around your area, most probably they have :)
