Plant ID Please?
 
Any idea what this plant might be? I have searched and am stumped.

It started out as a single stem (planted behind a piece of driftwood) and in five months it has grown to the surface and produced 7 or 8 additional stems. The second picture is a new stem that came creeping out from under the driftwood and is now growing in front.

It grows fast and I don't know if you can tell by the pictures taken on my cell phone, but there are roots coming from the longer stems where the leaves are at.

Any and all info is appreciated.

I have no idea, but whatever it is, it's gorgeous! I hope you find out :)

Thanks, jentralala. :)

I snapped a couple more pictures trying to grab more detail. Hopefully someone will recognize it.

The roots that grow at the leaf nodes:

These are just suggestions. At first I thought it might be Heterantherfa zosterifolia, but due to the leaf margins I think Nesaea crassocaulis might be closer. The latter can be a very red-leaf plant, but only in very bright light. There are photos online showing the leaves more yellow-green as in your photos.

Byron.

Thanks, Byron.

I'm going to read up on the two plants you mentioned and try to figure out how and where I can cut a piece off to replant in another tank. Thanks again!
