Help with IDing a new plant
 
2 Attachment(s)
I just got this plant from my LFS and I dont recall what its called.. does anyone recogize this? Id like to do a little research on it and I dont know what it is. >.<

Also, does the anacharis in this picture look like it has a chance to recover? When I got it it didnt look like it was in very good shape and Ive been hoping I can maybe bring it back to good health.

Also: Would the anacharis grow better if I allowed it to float?

Don't worry about the anacharias,its a very hardy plant and will definitely recovery. Also it does grow better floating. As for the other plant I'm not sure, but I think its some kind of South East Asian plant.

okay thanks for the reply!

my boyfriend says that told me it was a laceleaf plant. I cant find anything on the internet named that that looks similar at all to this plant... I'm completely lost as to what it could be. >.<

At first glance, I would suggest the ferny plant may be the true Ceratopteris thalictroides. [C. cornuta, commonly called Water Sprite, is sometimes incorrectly named C. thalictroides, so don't let that confuse things as images on the internet may be erroneously identified.] I would have to research more to be certain, but this is a starting point.

I was looking at different pictures and I thought it looked very similar to water sprite.. I'm going to the lfs again today so ill double check with the owner.
