I got this new live plant a few days ago and forgot to read the box before i threw it away and have no idea what it is and would like to know. Can anyone tell me? I personally think its either anubis or anubis nana? Thank you! Here are some pictures of it:

I bought it at Petco in a tube. Rumor has it theyre not aquatic plants and will rot and die after a few weeks but we'll see lol. no big deal if thats the case i will buy a legit one. But so far it actually got more GREEN than brown!

I would say it is definitely a Ludwigia of some kind. There are so many variants it is hard to tell from the pic, but if it is a Ludwigia, then it is a true aquatic plant. That's something at least.

I definitely think its a Ludwigia as well. I regret throwing away the box now but it's okay. It definitely from how its reacting to water looks aquatic!

He doesnt recall the name of it but he said he doesnt think its the plant you both think it is he said it goes really red under lots of light but VERY hard to grow and will prob die in two weeks or so they are that hard to maintain.
