Picked up this plant today and was wondering what it’s called? Wasn’t named in the store.

It also has small white clumps (pictures attached) all over the stems, and i’m wondering if anyone knows whether this is just part of the plant or whether it is a fungus/disease?

Thanks

Alternanthera with flowers (the one that look like fungus/disease) that proves above water growth.

Difficult plant for me.

Perhaps alternanthera reineckii? If it is, it likes higher light, prefers CO2, and the white clumps are a normal part of the plant.
Perfect, thanks! I’m not running CO2 but have quite an intense light so hopefully should do okay
