What Is This?

What plant is this and what type of care does it need. I was told it was medium light and put it in substrate but it’s dying when the amazon swords in the same tank and growing like crazy. Can I leave it floating until roots grow then try planting again? Should I use root tabs (I have flourish tabs but not sure if it’s the same). Thank you!!

Moneywort perhaps?
Yeah looks like Moneywwort to me. I've had that in the past and what I did is I had it floating until I see good roots on them before planting it on my substrate. and I plant it mildly and not really deep

did you get them on the same place? It could be adapting on the new environment. some plants are grown immersed rather than submerged so growth would be different then converts afterwards

This is the moneywort I got from the same place that came in 2 shipments before the new plant. I think this one has algae on it so I got otos for this tank.

Yeah could be converting, or possibly a type of bacopa as well? Now I'm not sure lol

I'm not so great at identifying most plants, but I recently bought moneywort and it had those flowers on it too, looks pretty identical to me

Bacopa monnieri, aka Moneywort. Like a lot of perennials it will flower when it grows out of the water.
