    Question Can you ID this plant for me?

    0 Not allowed!
    Hi all, I bought a large batch of plants recently. All of them had labels but this one in particular was just labelled as "Special" so I don't really know what it is. It was in the low-medium light category (which I hope is correct as my tank lighting is poor). It's grown a fair bit in the week I've had it so I'm hopeful it will thrive.

    Having had a look through my plant catalogues I think it might be a bacopa of some sort?

    I don't think that bacopa have serrated leaf edges. I think it might be a Mexican oak leaf (shinnersia rivularis) that had turned pale and thin under low light...

    Hmmm. Googling that brings up pictures that I'm not sure look anything like it:

    Remember, I've only had it a week - it was from a planted tank sale kept under good lighting (along with the 11 others I purchased which I have IDs for and are very healthy) so I don't think it's become weak or pale.

    Any other suggestions?
