Hi guys, yesterday i bought a new plant named hemigraphis for my aquarium from the store and now i just googled it's name to see how to care for it but there is lots of articles that say hemigraphis is not an aquatic plant and it wont last long under water, so what should i do?

Take it out before it dies and or starts rotting.

You should go back to the shop and get it changed. The shopkeeper will probably agree as you have a genuine reason

maybe a small glass bowl with some water and gravel, it should grow in there.

I just don't understand why they sell non aquatic plants as aquatic. They got me like that once except mine was a full terrestrial plant! It was Petco. I just put it in a flower pot in my backyard and I'm still growing it. If what you have there is a semi aquatic or bog plant, people have grown them in HOB filters with rock wool or a coarse substrate so water could pass through it. All you would need is a desk lamp with a decent CFL bulb in it aimed at it.
