I am pretty sur eI have L. Repens but want to know for sure.

This is my plant and I was told by someone else that it might be L. Ovalis. Is there any tell tale traight that makes it easy to identify Repens from Ovalis?

the budding looks like lud. repens, but....

to me it looks like a hygro. look at the pointed bottom pink leaf and the veins.

i'll even go so far as to say hygrophylia poly even
Watch our thread! A MyCatsDrool and Travis Simonson Joint Production....55 Tanganyikan Tank. It is hidden in the photography showcase. It is really my tank, but Trav is helping and we live next door from each other...so....

CCTV Has shut its doors. Off the air.

It's called Sex Panther, by Odeon. Illegal in 9 countries. Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good.

I think that the bottom leaf is tilted in such a way it does resemble hygro but the rest of the plant is a dead givaway. Definately L. repens.
