    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?

    One final bump to see if anyone can offer anything further. No one on another forum can offer any suggestions either. How strange!

    still no idea but just wanted to note that with all previously mentioned aquatic plants,
    the leaves come out singly on the stems, while on this plant here they emerge in clusters

    An excellent point, thanks.

    Shot in the dark here, some sort of hygrophila? That was my first thought when I saw it.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.
