Sir,

This very common herb seems to be the Alternanthera philoxeroides (Mart.) Griseb. I have an earlier upload of this plant which was identified by Rajdeo Ji. Moreover, Gurcharan Sir discussed it very recently.

H & H : small aquatic herb, also in ditches and moist place, very common
Date : 19/11/12 (in pond) & 20/11/12 (last four pics in roadside drain)
Place: Hooghly

Thank you & Regards,

surajit

Sir,

A correction, this can be long, 2 feet or more when in ponds.
