[APD] Native plant ID
I picked a sprig of plant out of the Boise River today and brought it home.
Of course plants don't respond to bad conditions as fast as critters, so I'm
wondering about the plant's id and likelyhood of sirvival in a tropical tank.
I decided to the government key, so dug through the list archives, found the
referenc, went to Lucidcentral and tried to download the sample version of
the reader. It told me I had to register as a member first. THen it said I
had to have a confirmation code from the registration confirmation email
before I could sign on as a member and download the lucent reader. So here I sit,
waiting to get the code to do the download so I can try to identify this
Meanwhile, maybe you folks can help with an ID. This is probably an Idaho
native, in water rarely rising into the 60's farenhiet. It is a stem plant,
with single leaves organized in alternating opposition (one on the left side
followed by one on the right side) and what appears to be branching starting
at the base of each leaf. The leaves are a little under two inches (5cm)
long, about 3/8 in (1 cm) wide, attached without stems and "crinkled". There is
a reddish tint near the edges.
Any ideas/helpful information?
