I can't seem to find what it is or any information on it.
I have scanned though website after website trying to find something similar but still nothing.

Any help would be much appreciated. :-D

I have no idea! Looks nice though. One issue is that emersed (out-of-water) growth forms can look very different, in terms of leaf shape and stem thickness, from plants grown immersed (under water). I don't recognize the plant, but then again, there are lots of plants I can't ID! If the plant fades over time, well... then oops. Just enjoy it in the meantime and see what happens.

Since I see lots of nodal rootlets coming out, I bet it's aquatic, but that's just my hypothesis.

I bet someone here can ID it for you.

You can kind of see in the photo that it has quite a few roots sprouting from all over it .

Judging by the roots coming out of the nodes on the stems themselves I am guess and say it is aquatic. Through I dont know what plant species it is.

I have some ludwigia in the tank also, both brought from the same store but both look completely different. So I don't think that it's ludwigia

I'm guessing it is an alternanthera bettzickiana? common name: green hedge...

it has an aquatic cousin but is non aquatic itself...
