    The second I put this stem plant into my tank it started growing.

    I prune it back to 7 inches under the surface every week, and every week it hits the surface again.

    It's a marvellous grower and I highly recommend it.

    Now I just need to find out what it is

    I reckon it's Hygrophila corymbosa.
    I have the larger-leafed variety in my tank and it does about 4 inches a week.

    I think yours might be Hygrophila corymbosa Siamensis. ( Narrow leaf variety )

    Thanks @johnbirg

    That gave me a place to start looking.

    I think you may be right - or it could be Hygrophila Polysperma, but yes a Hygrophila either way.

    Great plant!

    Hygrophila polysperma. My favourite plant. I cut mine right back to the substrate every two months. Its a 2ft deep tank with HOT5 lights.
