Pictures of the root

Ok here are two pictures of the plant root and the size of a leaf relative to the size of a pencil.
I'm thinking if I can identify this plant I may be able to get it do SOMETHING,
ANYTHING... lol
I have searched many a site to figure out what this thing is.... just can't seem to find it.
Thanks in advance for the help.

Don't know what it is, but definitely does not look like a Crypt.

Well I figured if I could identify it then maybe I could figure out where in the world it comes from and then get it to do something by getting conditions close to what its natural origin would be like. It was labled a Balanese crypt when I bought it. But I don't really go strictly by what aquatic plants are labled in the stores. Alot of times they are labled incorrectly.
I think i might try to put it in a pot and put a jobes stick under it in some kitty litter and peat. Just to see if it will do something. (Nothing else has worked) Maybe move it to my tank that I have a peat filter on. That tank has 4wpg. no c02.
