Mystery Plants 4 & 5
I'm pretty sure these two are Ludwigia Somethingorother and Anubias Coffeeolia... I got 18 of the Anubias in one pot and about 15 of the Ludwigia Somethingorother in another little pot.
Can't seem to see Anubias in the photo. The plant on the left with long narrowish leaves parallel to the substrate (sort of) is a Cryptocoryne, I won't surmise which one, I know I have (or have had) it, there are several that seem to grow similar depending upon water conditions and can dramatically be different heights accordingly.
The stem plant is perhaps Ludwigia repens. The leaf veining seems to indicate this.
The small 1's look like Red cryptocoryne wendtii to me....Are you actually posting all these pic's just to entertain B & myself!? :-) (just kidding)
thanks for your input Angel079 and Byron. I'm not sure of the difference between the Anubias and the Cryptocornes obviously.I will admit, however, to thinking it might be fun to entertain folks with mystery plant identifications. I'm glad you helped me out, though I see I still have a lot of research to do.;-)
PS-I looked up some crypts and I think it is Undulata...
I was also going to suggest Ludwigia Repens for the one on the right. The leaf shape looks a bit longer and straighter (not tear dropped) but the way the leaves grow looks very similar.
You are saying you NOT ONLY have a store with a plant selection for sale but ON TOP they even add labels :shock: you gotta life far far far away from here :-D
Here's Anubias for ya Anubias
The leaves appear more plastic looking (if the plant is in popper condition) its also smaller then Crypto's and generally they're more darker green - You just SEE the difference:lol:
Its always good to know what you have there, some plants have 'special' needs sorta compared to other, knowing what you got, allows you to read up on their needs.
I'm pretty sure it is a crypt as you all suggested. I'm thinking red or undulata... and I'm leaning towards undulata (for the low plant). I think it's great I have a store that sells pots of plants as "potted plants" instead of naming them all. It's so much fun trying to figure out what they are.
