Did you buy it as C.parva? I think it looks like C. x willisii, sometimes also called C.'lucens' which is often sold as C.parva.

I got it ages ago without a label and has just survived in a low light set-up. Put it into my main tank and has more than doubled in size in a month.
It only sits about 5 cm high with the individual leaves being about 4cms long

I'm with John on this one. looks like Wendtii Green to me. Willisii/Lucens (in my tank at least) has much longer stems.

LOL, guess I've got the same.

I was uncertain myself about Wendtii due to the fact that the leaves didn't appear "crinkly" enough but reading the description of size, etc it probably is. That was why I was wondering if it could have been Parva.

Thanks all for your responses.
