    I believe it is Poaceae sp. "Purple Bamboo".

    Best regards,

    Seems structured like a type of persicaria.
    Do you have a pic not so close?

    It has a similar leaf structure and growth pattern to Murdannia keisak as well.

    Looks like Murdannia keisak from then photo. M. keisak stems will tend to bend on the bottom and send many offshoots from there, but otherwise straight growth. How is your looking like?

    It will also develop a purplish gradient on top leaves when stressed but most often light green.

    Oh no, I would have loved it in my tank. Is there any way you can get more and I’ll buy it from you? Pleas confirms with your friend if it’s purple bamboo.

    Thanks!
