Flowers! ID help needed


So, my cutting of this plant did not root, but instead lodged itself in some floating moss, where it is happily starting to cover my entire tank. I will need to thin it out very soon. It is now throwing lots of these charming little white and violet flowers. It is a common plant, but for the life of me I can't remember the name. Help appreciated. Immersed it grows in upright stems... leaves have pale yellow green stripes.

Could it be Lindernia rotundifolia?

Yes! Lindernia rotundifolia, variegated!
Thank you. It's a lovely plant, I think. I will try to get some of the rooted floating plant to grow immersed...
