Looks like some kind of bucephalandra red variety. They are like anubias or Java fern where their roots grow around hardacape and their rhizomes must be above the substrate so as to not rot.

Looks like Alternanthera reineckii 'Mini', which can grow w/I substrate.

Thanks, so true! Do you think it can also be glued?

The only plants that can be glued are epiphytes. Well that and mosses of course.
