Identifying plants collected in the wild [USA]

Last week I was going along a stream in Colorado and collected two
plants growing in that stream. I thought that one of them was Cabomba,
but on further looking after reaching home it was evident that it was not.
Another one, I have no idea. Both of them seem to be growing well in my
tank. Both are stem plants.

What do pple do when they want to id unknown plants? I tried looking
up in www.tropica.dk but had no luck.

For the curious, I collected these plants from the stream running by
the Hornbek Homestead which is by Florissant in Colorado. The cabomba
like plant grows in the stream in the millions.


PS: I posted this verbatim on rec.aquaria.freshwater.plants and did not
get any responses and hence decided to try it here.
