Name of plants?


I got one of the plants from someone when buying hairgrass and the first one was tangled in with it. Got a good amount of it. What is it called?

The second photo, some baby plants somehow are clinging onto the java fern i got. I'm trying to figure out if it is a small java fern too or if its a Wisteria?
see below.

Second photo, of the java fern, shows new java fern plants growing from the tip of the parent leaf. Not uncommon at all-though in my experience it happens most when the plant is stressed, which transplanting certainly counts as.
You can trim the leaf if you don't like how they look, or let them grow as they are. Eventually they'll come lose on their own or you can remove them to discard or propogate elsewhere as you choose.

From what i recall the seller's full grown ones looked like... i'm not sure if it's glosso. I guess i'll have to wait till it grows out better and see. This plant: each stem is connected by another horizontal stem on ground level in tank and the roots shooting down form the stems. Not sure if glosso does that too?

I was hoping that it would be java fern i need to grow more to fill the gaps in my tank. Do they really grow new sprouts like that, by the tips of the leaves? I find that interesting.

And yes your 2nd plant is just more java fern. Let it grow out a bit and then pick em off and tie them to whatever.

I agree with these ID's. 1st one is definitely not Glosso.

Thanks... the link looks exactly like the one i have. I'll keep that in mind.
As for the fern, do i need to get the roots in substrate or is it better to keep the out of it?
