    DefaultPlant ID

    Yesterday I went looking for plants at King Ed Pet Center and had my eye on some plants. However, a lot of them don't have ID's on them so here's some pictures I took.

    Can anyone ID these plants for me?

    thanks.

    1) Some sort of sword? 2) Cabomba Caroliniana 3) ?

    Some plants found at LFS may not always be true aquatic plants (survives totally emmersed).

    I was worried about that. I especially worried about that sword looking plant.

    The first plant is not aquatic.
    It's Dracena sanderiana - Lucky Bamboo.

    The second plant might be Limnophila sessiliflora. But I can't really tell if that's what you have or not...



    The third plant might be Alternanthera bettzickiana `Green'. Alternanthera bettzickiana `Green' might not be aquatic as well. There's very little information I can find. So I am really not sure what it is.

    Transposon might be right about the ID on the 2nd plant.
    From plantedtank.net: " Cabomba, each of the "fans" sits on a separate stem, while the fans are directly attached to the stem with Limnophila"

    I say you're only safe with the 2nd plant as being truly aquatic.

    Yeah. Sorry about the bad quality phone camera pictures...

    Lucky Bamboo eh? Maybe I'll just get it and plant it in a pot instead. I'll be needing some luck...

    Anybody have any ideas on the third plant... is it some kind of anubias or something?

    As far as I know Anubias = leaves grow from a rhizome. Seeing from the picture that the leaves are growing from a stem it's not likely to be an Anubias.

    Haha. Stick around and you'll learn lots from this forum. A few of us have also practically memorized every plant from here: http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...finder/all.php

    Thanks for that link - bookmarked. Very nice.

    What LFS do you go to to get your plants?
