ID please

Hello, i was wondering if any of you would be able to ID this plant
I bought it from a local guy under the name "Siamensis" but he didn't really know what it was.
Sorry for the bad photos, i was using my phone, and i haven't been taking as good of care of my tank and plants as i should be
leafs show sign of deficiency and have fallen off at the base, roots come out from the bottom parts of the stems

Grown in high-ish light (dual T8, diamond fixture) with CO2 and dry ferts. substrate is gravel capped miracle gro
