I have the same exact plant! I don't know what it is either. Mine was grown from an emmersed stem bought from a grocery store under the name "Rau O'm" if that helps. Here's a link to google search I did
Free herb information - RAU OM

It looks to me like Limnophila aromatica, but emersed form. I could be wrong, but I think it is. Once it transfers over to submersed, the leaves will get thinner and the tops more red, and a light pink underside to the leaves. Break off some and smell it.

I think that it's probably submersed. Mine looks the same and it has been submersed for several months now. It didn't changed much for me when it was placed in my tank. Also it doesn't have the same smell as the long leaved aromatica.

I think in Asia they call this Limnophila aromatica even though it doesn't look like the type we normally see submersed in aquaria. http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/pl...tml#post244397 as in these pics
