Neptunia is a genus of aquatic leguminosae.  they grow like weeds here at the 
brooklyn botanic garden's aquatic house, in the tropical water lily pond.  
i'm not sure what species it has but produces nice pea-like yellow flowers 
and green mimosa-like flowers.  

a friend of mine and i have tried to keep it in the past with no success.  
it's not an aquatic plant but grows emersed.  i had one piece i rooted in 
water that was growing for a while but then it had an attack of mealy bugs.  
subsequent pieces have alwasy rotted for me.
