I bought random aquatic seeds off amazon claiming to be Monte Carlo. They started off tiny as all seedlings do but now they are a few inches tall. Anyone know what this could be?11D9C223-23DC-40C2-970D-2AD2C5B9288F.jpeg9DF90076-B452-4E6D-A0D0-5591ED76D0E8.jpeg59716622-9588-44D3-A5E6-5D850D20F732.jpeg

Look bottom right last picture. Looks like a stem plant to me. Some kind of hygrophila? For identification you need to take one out post a picture of the entire plant with roots.
At any rate it was a good buy, looks good and doing well.

Taking a whole plant out for a better ID will be key
.. and a link to the seeds you found too.

In my experience most seeds sold as Aquatic plants tend to be a non aquatic grass, it's far too expensive and involved to propagate aquatics through seed. Especially when they will multiply other ways.

They normally die off after a few weeks of looking good.. I would be interested in an update of how they are doing.
