Re: carpet/undercover plants... (glossostigmas)

Dave Wilson:
"Glossostigma elatinoides is found in the southern areas of Australia
(Temperate climate) and not in the tropics.  It is also found in New
Zealand (temperate climate).    Here (Darwin) in the tropics of
Australia it does not do well during the warmer part of the year (33
deg C average) but grows very well during the dry season (25 deg C
average).      Glossodtigma diandrum a species with smaller leaves is
tropical and is found across the top of Australia.    I think 83 to
85 is a little too hot for G. elatinoides.   G.diandrum likes more
light than G.elatinoides.   In Australian botany books they are
referred to as "Mud Matt"."

Hello Dave,
The glosso here are always labelled as "Glossostigma elatinoides".  The
leaves of mine were about 5~7mm in diameter.  Should this be elatinoides or
