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.

It looks a lot different from the Ludwigia I got from the LFS. I googled around and saw lots and lots of different Ludwigia species. I wonder which species it is in the Ludwigia genus.

Do you have a larger image of it? Something that will show it to scale with its surroundings?

I could get one, but it would take a while. The plant in the pic is 4.25" tall.

Looks like Ludwigia repens to me.

Here's repens. I don't think that's what it is. In my plant, the segments are straighter, thinner, and less juicy looking. Also my leaves are round and don't have the striations you see in this picture of Ludwigia repens

I could be wrong, but it is the closest I could come. You never know...give it time and it just might wind up looking like the second posted pic.

My guess would be L. repens or possibly bacopa caroliniana. Either one looks similar to the pic when it has been growing under lower light conditions. Would lean my guess more toward a type of ludwigia though.

Just a thought ...

itafx, you said it was a plant from a "local creek", or something to the effect (in another thread). It seems a lot of plants grow all over large regions but appear differntly in sub-regions. I dont think you mentioned what part of the world you are from. Knowing your location, may help someone give you a better answer in your quest for an ID.
