Without any symmetric conditions on potentials, we proved the following nonlinear Schrödinger system \begin{eqnarray} \left\{\begin{array}{ll} \Delta u-P(x)u+\mu_1u^3+\beta uv^2=0, \quad &\mbox{in} \quad R^2\\ \Delta v-Q(x)v+\mu_2v^3+\beta vu^2=0, \quad &\mbox{in} \quad R^2 \end{array} \right. \end{eqnarray} has infinitely many non-radial solutions with suitable decaying rate at infinity of potentials $P(x)$ and $Q(x)$. This is the continued work of [8]. Especially when $P(x)$ and $Q(x)$ are symmetric, this result has been proved in [18].
