    Hi,

    A few months ago I bought HEMIANTHUS CALLITRICHOIDES "Cuba". The plant was not happy in my tank. That time I did not use to much CO2, plant was almost dead after 2-3 weeks, so I took it out just 2-3 steams and planted them in The pot:

    3 weeks ago I used this plant in my new setup on ADA Amazonia. I decided to use my Emersed HC and `ve a look what I`ve got now:

    Yes, believe or not this is the same plant.
    Did I really get HC first time?

    Ps. Sorry for my English.

    The last photo doesn't look like HC for me, but don't know what it looks like.

    this looks a lot like HM (Hemianthus micranthemoides). it does look a lot different in its emmersed forum

    Have to agree with Stu it looks like HM
    There are some stem plants that have very small round leaves when emmersed, but grow larger eliptical leaves when in water, for example Rotala Rotundifolia.

    Cheers

    I have grown HM imersed and emersed, and HM is what you have.
