Trying to find out the name of a plant I have!

Postby Bassydix » Wed Apr 01, 2015 8:18 am

Hi all, I bought a plant yesterday but I can't for the life of me remember what it's called! Tried to add a picture to the post but for some reason it won't let me :( so excuse my attempt of describing it!

I saw a grown version of it and it was around 3/4 inches tall, a carpet plant with quite thin stems, short needle sized leaves, and develops a pink & white form of the same leaf on top, if it helps it came in a pot with gel, no major roots and reminded me a bit of moss when separating it.

Want to get more but can't find it!!

Any help would be much obliged :D

Thanks all,
Paul :)

Hmm... not sure what that would be, when you mentioned a carpeting plant with short needle-like leaves I was thinking Utricularia graminifolia or maybe Lilaeopsis brasiliensis, but I've never seen them develop pink/white forms.
