Could be the plant was being grown emerged when you bought it or shortly before. I am growing some wendtii submerged and emerged. The emergant growth tends to be broader and darker, while the submerged leaves tend to be narrower and "reach" towards the surface more, so I am not positive this is a nutrient deficiency. Could be normal, though I would be curious to hear input from others.
