Petco plant ID

Picked up a few new plants at Petco today and wondering if I can get an ID on them. The first plant said it was a Crypt, but not what type. The second and third plants were bought as "Assorted Stem Plants".

Proper identification for Cryptocoryne is difficult unless there is a spathe, but my guess is C. walkeri var. lutea. Someone else will have to help with the stem plants.

The second picture looks like Moneywort.

The third picture is almost definitely emmersed Ludwigia Repens.

Second picture is certainly not moneywort, but it does look like a bacopa species.

First and third pics: agree with @TaylorTurner and @Positron.

Second pic is unknown to me.

Yes, tough to tell with crypts. C. walkeri is a good guess for the first one though.

Second is Clinopodium brownei, not Bacopa. It should have a stem that's square in cross section and an appealing fresh smell.

3rd is a Ludwigia. Probably L. repens.

It definitely has square stems and smells minty. It also really seemed to hate the alum treatment. All the stems turned really stiff like toothpicks. Everything else tolerated the soak just fine.

I'm really thankful for everyone's help in identifying these plants. Love this forum!
