I have quite a few plants that I do not know the species of but I presently have one that is flowering. The flowers are very small and a lavender color. Can you ID this plant?

Thanks!

I think it's a flower of some sort of rotala...Can't give you a species though. Someone with more skill might chime in though.

Nope. It looks like his plant has an inflorescence that's a terminal spike, meaning that it's at the top of the stem and there's no more growth after it.
See:

In R. indica, there can be short spikes at the nodes or just two flowers at a node, one above each leaf (Ammannia has an inflorescence called a cyme, with 3 flowers each, above each leaf).
