Nice looking plants. I'm certainly no expert, but it looks like the
dwarf form of Lobelia cardinalis to me. A scale reference in the pic
would help me better compare, but I have some dwarf Lobelia growing
emersed as well, and the only real difference I see between your
plants and mine is that your plants' leaves appear a tad more
elongated, and it looks like they get sunlight or a lot of high
quality artificial light instead of the measly NO fluorescent mine
get. (Nothing grows plants like good ol' Sol.) Also, IME, Lobelia
responds well to rich, humousy (is that a word?) soil, so that may be
contributing to the size difference you're seeing depending on how
you set your culture up.
