ID Plant Please

I bought this plant in a set of 6 when I first started my tank a week ago and spread it out in the foreground. LFS employee told me this was a low lying grass-like plant that would spread in a carpet. It wasn't any bigger when I bought it. Any ideas? In hindsight, I probably should've written down the names of the plants I bought. Genius idea! Thanks in advance.

I think you buried it too deep. It will die. I have no idea what plant is that. Looks like liliaeopsis.

Pull it out of the substrate and take a picture that shows the roots/stems/growing tips for a better chance to ID. Could be many things, incl non-aquatic.
