This is what we have growing in our yard. It’s some type of Pennywort, but I’m not sure if it’s something that would be kept in an aquarium? You guys have any idea?
It meets all the ID points that I’ve found for Brazilian Pennywort, which is sold as an aquarium plant. The area where this is growing is frequently under water for days at a time. I don’t see any reason why I can’t put it in my tank, but I’m very new to aquatic plants.

Yep, I have something similar all over ours! It’ll grow as an aquarium plant, but since it’s not 100% fully aquatic it might need supplements; rich substrate and/or liquid ferts, along with medium-bright light and possibly CO2. It can be difficult to convert it to growing in water so I’m more partial to just buying it in the store, but you can still give it a shot!

Thank you so much!!!
