What's the name of this plant?

Hi!
Can anyone tell me the name of the plant in the left side of the tank in the pictures a little ways down the page in this thread: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=116842 ?
That's my tank but right now I don't have the means to upload the picture to this thread. I've had that plant since I started the tank about 4 months ago. It's the only one that I have left from the beginning. Two of the plants, I found out later, weren't truly aquatic and then I had a smaller, pointier sword that melted away slowly as well as pennywort and dwarf hairgrass. This plant is the only one that survived my low lighting. It came in a tube from Petco but I can't remember the name of it. I'd like to know for when I plant my future 50 gallon.
The other plants in there are fanwort, hornwort, amazon sword (on the right... Fishie really likes hiding in it and then poking his head out from behind it. hehe), a nice round moss ball, and a very weirdly-shaped moss ball .

Thanks!

I was also thinking maybe some kind of sword, But the really tall one on the right is Amazon Sword. Also, I thought all swords had pointed leaves, and this one has round ones. But I could be wrong.

I have three of those, it is almost like a dwarf amazon sword, may be broad leaf as the leaves are a bit different. They stay small and the leaves are thick, they are great for infront of the tank for an accent. I believe that they grow a bit bigger, like in the photo, in low light, but in medium-high light they should stay fairly compact.

So yeah, not sure on the name, but I have 3 of them.

Cool. Thanks!
It does't seem to be growing at all, but then I saw a picture of it from a couple months ago, and it's definitely become more dense. It just grows veeeerrry slooowwly.

pretty sure it's a rosette sword...i've got a nice big one growing in the sorority.


So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

It's what homegrown terror linked. 100% sure. Exact leaves shape, just not size.
