Plant ID help

I got this plant a long while back (probably a year) with some moss. It was about 2 inches tall and only 3 leafs. It has grown well, but very very slowly. I have not used ferts as it was in my 5g Betta tank, but it did have a small DIY CO2 bottle that I was very inconsistent about refilling. I've included 3 pics. 2 with a plastic knife to show relative size.

TIA.

Also, anyone interested is welcome to have it. $7 shipped.

Glosso leaves are far smaller than those appear to be in the photo.

that is really strange. i've never seen anything like it. I grow glosso and marsilea, and i've seen both grown emersed, and that definitely is not either one.

where did you get this plant? im really curious now.

It does look like some sort of anubias or crypt a little bit. I don't know what it is though.

that's strange. It might be some kind of marselia or glosso, maybe some other stem. IDK
