This plant is available in my LFS, but a google search doesn't reveal much about it. The green version appears as S. Valerandi in aquasabi: Samolus valerandi

Anyone have experience with this plant? From the terrestrial plant databases, appears to be a 'marginal' aquatic plant?

few theories to how it was introduced to the hobby, it's a us native, but apparently it was imported from china as well... who knows lol.

from what i've heard it's pretty fast growing and gets a really nice pink colour. a much more expensive AR that gets BIG.
