narrow leaf have thiner and longer leaves under certain light.
but sometimes, both look identical, specialy under medium light. is when is a little higuer when you can make a difference by style.

otherwise, looks very similar.

I finally have a Rotala mexicana green (emersed grown) courtesy of AzFishKid. It reminds me of a miniature pine tree/evergreen. I don't know how it will look like when growing submersed. The emersed grown has thick leaves with a velvety texture, the stems and leaves seem fibrous and not delicate (making easy to handle without breaking the leaves and stems).
