Yet another plant Id Please


OK.. I was propagating some Rotala rotundifolia that someone gave me.. making masses of it with a clay base in a growout bin but something else started to grow.. it is not a native of that I am sure.. LOL

It appears to be a rotala of some type.. but I am not sure what.. Any ideas???
the second pic is just a little larger than life size
