Help me ID this plant?




This plant was advertised as just "bacopa", and I ordered it thinking it was Moneywort, but I'm not so sure now. Also, is it supposed to be that...brownish green color? Or will it eventually brighten up? This is the way this plant looked when I got it. I literally just got the package about 30 minutes ago. It was shipped on Monday and got here some time today. Thanks in advance!



edit: Added two more pictures so that you all could get a better visual of the color I failed to describe earlier. I think it's easier to compare it to the vibrant green color of my wisteria and anacharis.

It looks like it could be some sort of bacopa, although I'm not familiar with all the different types. That color, though, just doesn't seem right. Looks like it may have been exposed to cold temps somewhere along the line. If it doesn't perk up in a couple days, I'd call the seller.

Did you get any other plants in the shipment? If so, how are they doing?

I ordered hornwort and wisteria from the same person. The hornwort is in pristine condition, but the wisteria leaves are kind meh. The stems are really healthy and green though.

I have the same plant. Was advertised as bacopa, not sure if sub species, but it will brighten up unless for some reason it's a different strain, but It looks exactly like mine

Good to know, thanks! About how long until they turn green again?

After a bit of research, I think I actually have bacopa caroliniana. I've compared what I have to the pictures on google, and they look pretty similar. Not exactly what I had originally gone for, but I think once these things grow and get some color (they still look just like they did when I got them, save for one stem which has turned green & the very tips of all the rest), they'll be an acceptable alternative. For now, anyway.

I'm not sure how long it'll take to brighten up, mine was about 4-5 days? there are still some leaves here and there that are decaying though.
Goodluck with them!

I actually just pulled all but one full stem and the upper halves of two stems of my tank and into the trash. They weren't changing colors and had mostly started losing leaves and rotting. It was more work than it was worth in my opinion. They were kind of blocking out the light to some of my other plants anyway, so I'm not really upset about it. I'll just make sure to be more careful next time.
