Your wisteria looks more like water sprite to me. And your little plant up front is probably Staurogyne Repens (aka tropica 049).

They've done it again.... putting wrong sticker on the wrong plant. Gah~ my lfs....

It is definitely a water sprite but, then again, both plants are almost identical. Also, I'm quite illiterate about plants my self

and that is definitely Staurogyne Repens, thank you very much for pointing that out!!

I'll update the main post now.
