    I have been terrible at keeping track of what my plants are, and most came only labeled as "tissue culture" or "bunch" plants.

    Starting with the bunch plants, Plant #1 (on the left) has long leaves with the tendency to throw out roots at every leaf junction (petiole). Lately some of the bunch have taken to floating, with root growth going like mad, despite my attempts to make them root into my soil. It has experienced rapid growth in my aquarium.
    Plant #2 is the one with really long, thin leaves coming out in rosettes (look down by the driftwood, just to the left of center). In the store the assistant showed me what they can grow into--bunched and thickly leafed stems upwards of 2 feet tall. This one has remained rooted into my substrate without issue. It has grown moderately.
    (I know what the other two plants are here--peace lily roots and java moss :p)

    And the tissue culture plant:
    Plant #3 - has a bulb? long, long leaves which are crinkled and dark in my water conditions.
    (also, I know that is an anubias in front of it, but no clue what kind?)

    The bulb plant is a type of aponogeton maybe crispus.

    If this is the bottom left of center plant it's a bronze wendtii.

    For sure. Also random info about them. They flower at the top of the tank.

    So the last one isn’t an aponogeton. Aponogeton are bulb plant, not cultivated in tissue culture. So if bulb aponogeton, but no bulb and /or tc It’s a crypt of some sort, check flowgrow from a exact species matchup... possibly a crispulata, undulata, etc... (keep in mind some can be green or red depending on conditions)
    The first plant is hygrophila polysperma. Not sure I can make out the second plant? Could you post a close up of it only?
