I am having trouble identifying this plant. The guy at the store said it was a cardinalis but i cant find any info on it and the rare pics i do find don't look like my plant.

here is the strange part:
some of my java ferns started turing brown and this plant is loosing its purple color. I have been told it is due to the fact that my tank is still cycling. The leaf that the arrow i drew is pointing to was all purple when i got the plant but now only the tip is purple.

That leaf recently died, but the plant seems to be doing well. There is lots of new growth but the leaves are green. Will they turn purple?

It looks like a cryptocoryne blassi that I ordered from They have lots of pictures you can check out there. If it isn't that one then maybe you can find it by looking at thier photos. :hehe:
