    Does anyone know if this plant is commonly available in LFS? I'm interested in obtaining some but I still haven't quite figured out how to differentiate it from Cabomba.

    Here's some links with photos to provide more information for those who might also be interested in this species.

    bought mine from PolyArt a long time ago. Grows like weed; if I'm not wrong it is banned in certain parts of the United States, because it grows very aggressively.

    Thanks for confirming that this plant can be obtained at the LFS. What's the easiest way for a newbie like me to tell this apart from Cabomba, which seem much more common in the trade? It's a shame because this plant is native to Southeast Asia and seems like a really easy plant for low-tech aquariums.

    Managed to buy 2 pots of what I believe were Limnophila sessiliflora from Polyart last week. Not sure if my ID is correct, but these plants look quite different from Cabomba.

    I think your guess on the ID is correct. It's quite attractive I must say.
