Is this Rotala Colorata?

I bought a mixed pack of trimmings a long time ago and I've decided to root and sell off some of my extras. There were three different types of rotala in the pack and I'm having a hard time deciding what's what. It could be either Rotala H'Ra, Rotala colorata, or rotala rotundifolia.

I thought rotala rotundifolia had smaller leaves? I could be wrong though.

Actually I just searched it a different way and it says that colorata grows straight up and doesn't branch off very much. rotundifolia is a little more prone to branching and h'ra is really prone to branching off and creeping across the substrate. It may be h'ra. I have to keep it trimmed to keep it off the substrate. It really wants to creep.

Yes I would think rotundifolia
