1 or 2 plants? ID?

I bought a few different plants at a LFS and one of them was Ambulia. Are the stringy shoots on the top part of this plant or is it a stow away?

That's utricularia gibba and can become a pain if left in your tank.

I'd love to have that as a stow away, just cause I'm a sucker for anything that can be called an oddity, even if its not really usable in a proper aquascape

Utricularia gibba can become invasive, every little piece that breaks off can start a new strand that branches out.
