Question What is this plant?

Got a tiny little sprig of this in my plant order from Planted Aquariums Central:DSC00363.jpg
I have no clue what it is, just noticed it as I'm setting up my 15 gallon NPT sorority. Nothing on her website really looks like this plant.

Definitely glosso. It is a moderate-high light carpeting plant that likes CO2 for horizontal growth, if not it will grow up higher and won't spread ad much. It is an intermediate plant.

Thank You!!
Like I said, it's a tiny sprig. It's about an inch and half long. Wasn't a plant that I ordered, it's just not something that I would want.

Hi, It is glosso plant and it is one of the smallest plant of aquarium. Its better growth using lighting and its not hard for water. This plant is some different to other plants.

Get the best grow box.

Yep, that's a little trimming of glosso that probably got caught up in the plants you bought. :)

I use this in all my tanks, pretty much. :P
