My Goodness, what a quick replies again, would be glad if these
photoes at least, can be of any help to group.
of course, always Glad to be here!

Courtsey: google search engine: found and checked Dineshji's flicker
album Very nice green plant, it helps with common names also as
Tanayaji mentioned : one is water cabbage,
on other sites; What I learnt that the anatomy/structure of some other
acquatic plant including Pistia;magically helps breed mosquittoes..

Extracts of the earlier discussions were in Oct,Nov2009 from our Group:


For ready reference, if any
With Best Wishes,
