I think it's due to the difference in lighting. It's been grown submersed:3

Thank you!

You know I remember getting a plant from ya labelled Mermaid weed but didnt remember what it looked like. That and a lot of the stems you gave me didn't make it or are floating still in my 5.5 gallon I think.

Mermaid weed sounds so whimsical, lol - I can see why they'd want to call it that looking at the newer growth... thanks for solving the mystery, Ao!!!

Actually that looks like a Wisteria.. Wisteria when planted has leaves like the bottom ones your seeing.. When in a aquarium with rocks and stuff it has leaves like the top sections..

But then im by far no expert so I am probably wrong lol

Wisteria when grown emersed does look similar. Through have been told by several ppl that this is in fact Mermaids weed. Thanks for the input through!
