In the wild, that's where you'll find most Ludwigia, Bacopa and "pennywort"
-- as dense, small-leaved, ground hugging terrestrials near, but not in
water. I too walked all over them as a kid - not realizing what they were -
while at the very same time shelling out hard-earned paper route money for
them at the LFS.
Put them in a tank and they survive just fine, growing larger, much more
I'm still hoping to stumble across Ludwigia arcuata, Proserpinaca and Lobelia
cardinalis in the wild. I hear they're around...
