Help ID unknown red plants

Picked up some unknown reddish stem plants at LFS today. Went through planted tank profiles and still doesn't know what I am working with. Please help me identify this plant!

Thanks!

Not 100% sure. But it does have roots coming out of its stems, which are characteristics of a lot of aquatic stem plants.

Closest thing that it resembles is Hygrophila pinnatifida, but i don't think that's what it is. It's a possibility though i guess...

upon first glance it looks like a crypt. they are well known to have awesome colored underleaves and more bland tops. looks like a rosette plant as well. leaf shape is similar
maybe a crypt species based off those assumptions

Purple dragon flame w/e they call it.... then there's purple waffle and other stuff they sell that is not aquatic wether they don't know or they do but don't tell you . After all a sale is a sale.

Have to add if I remember right lucky bamboo is not a bamboo but a dracaena (sp?) same with white ribbon plant. Those can grow with thier feet wet but not the leaves . Then there is Kyoto grass which is a mondo grass which will die.

I am afraid you are right. Darn. What a waste of money.

Put some dirt in a jar, punch a hole in the lid, and you have a fine start to an emergent collection
