There was this really weak plant that I found when I bought my Hygrophila Polysperma. It couldn't even stand up straight when I took it out of the water, so I have to take it while it's in my aquarium, I hope you can still ID it in that way. Could it be hygrophila angustifolia?

It is now a few weeks since I had this plant. Thriving quite well, the melted leaves are growing back but the stem is still flimsy.

As you can see, it has lots of roots growing at the stem.

Heteranthera zosterifolia or Stargrass looks better when grown like a bush. Prune the tops, re-plant tightly close together and throw the old spindly stems away.
