Need help IDing some plants...

Not sure about the names of some of my plants...

1) This one was a freebie. It was just a stubb (no leaves or stems) that happened to be tangled up in the red tiger lotus I bought. I decided to plant it and it grew!



2) This one had little purple flowers on it when I bought it but I havent been able to get it to bloom again. However, when I bought it, there were only 3 plants there but it has grown into 8 in only a couple months.



3) Im not sure what the one next to the red tiger lotus is.



4) The one between the red tiger lotus and the fake log. (not the anubis nana)


5) last one... The sword looking one all the way in the back. Not a great picture I know..sorry...


Thanks for the help!

Thanks. Im wondering if the plant in picture #4 is even supposed to be an aquatic plant. It really hasn't grown much and it has a very weak root system, actually almost no root system.

Thanks for telling me to take the rhizomes out of the dirt. I didnt realize that I needed to do that.

The first and third plants look like a Crypts to me.

Second plant is Giant Hygro.

Can't figure out plant four.

I could figure out plant five if you take it out of the substrate and photo it.
