Another mystery plant
I received a large shipment of plants yesterday from a mail-order source.
One plant was a substitution and was identified as an Ammania. It
certainly does't like anything like any Ammania in my references (these
all appear to be stem plants) nor does it look like anything else I could
find. The substitute plant resembles a Crypt but has rigid leaves and
stems a little like an Anubia. It has a fleshy rhizome with rootlets
also similar to an Anubia but the rhizome is not horizontal like
Anubias but it may have been sliced. The leaves amd petioles are about
equal, about 3 inches long. The leaves are olive green on the top and a
bright garish wine-red on the underside with prominent veins. The leaf
edges are finely serrated. From my poor unscientific description can
anyone suggest what this is?
