A while back, I bought some of these plants and trimmed the dead leaves. When I planted it, I planted them rather deep and the crown was under the substrate, and as a result they slowly started to die. I redid my tank and leaned I had to keep the crown above the substrate. Well a few months later they have recovered pretty well. Only problem is I could have sworn that when I bought these plants they were jungle vals but now they are looking like dwarf sag. I did have some dwarf sag in my tank to and it is possible that I got them mixed up but I don't think that is the case. It has been about 3 months since and redid the tank and they are spreading like crazy. They are just not growing tall. Is this common for jungle val to stay short. I do have med to med-high light.

Thanks.

I was afraid you guys were going to say that. Now i have foreground plants on the back of my tank
On a second look are those runners coming from the mother plant to begin an new shoot? If so then i would have to change my answer to some type of Val but not jungle because its extremely short. Dwarf sag usually just splits right off the side of the main plant and just has leaves coming out of the substrate to propagate.
