Doesn't resemble any Crypt in particular. Just a generic interpretation of a Cryptocoryne.

If you are putting things like that in your aquarium, you probably don't belong here at PT!

This should not be in the "Plant" section of the board.

You need to add those to your tank with the broken light instead of live plants.

Cryptocoryne affinis looks kinda like that, or Aponogeton bovinianus. All Cryptocorynes, Aponogetons, and Crinums have leaves growing from a central crown, bulb, or rhizome.

If you are looking for a plant with similar growth habit as opposed to a similar looking plant, then look to plants that are shaped in rosettes. A rosette is a plant with a cluster of leaves in crowded circles or spirals arising basally from a crown (the part of the plant just above the roots).
