Can Anyone ID this Stem?


This is a stem that I have growing pretty well for me. All of the pieces I have came from one piece and its grown nicely. Anybody know what it is though? Thanks for the help. Sorry they're not the best pics

My hygro polysperma is much lighter green and has pink hues in any light i put it in. I think it looks like some kind of rotala, but with broader leaves.

Could be some weird form of Rotala rotundifolia. Though it also does look a lot like Rotala ramosior...

Nahh...I doubt it's r. Rotundifolia, the leaves seems too large. Looks like a veinless H. Polysperma though, also the stem looks like it.

The one that seems closest to me is the R Ramasoir. I have the "veinless" H. Polysperma and S. Repens and they both look and grow different than this plant even when in the same tank. Is likely at all that this could be R Ramasoir? Thanks for the help guys
