Not all LFS are the same.  The store I regularly trade in my excess
plants--Fountain's in La Mesa, CA--make an effort to correctly identify
their plants.  They also have two large charts on the wall, showing
pictures of the plants, their requirements, preferred planting location,
and whether they are true aquatic or terrarium plants.  I believe the
charts are from Tropica, if my memory is correct.
