    Hey guys,

    I bought these two plants a while ago. The store I bought it from had no idea which species they were and just sold them as "Freshwater Plants".

    I have searched the internet for like 4 hours with no success.

    Can anyone identify the plants?

    Thanks.:thumbup:

    Bottom one looks like hygrophylia polisperma, or some other hygrophylia family...

    The top plant is definitely no amazon sword. Its a common pot plant called "spatyphyllum Wallisii" or "Peace Lilly". It's non aquatic so will not last very long. The second plant I am yet to find the name. It's also non aquatic and defo not Hygro Polysperma. I also got that very same plant when I started FW plants. Best is to remove both and plant in your garden. ;)
