Default Red leafy plant ID please

Hi,

Can anyone help me ID this plant? It comes in large red variegated
stems, and fails to root before my pleco has ripped it to ribbons,
so I guess it's not a true aquatic?

I've been right through http://www.aquahobby.com/garden.html
and http://www.aquaticplants.eu.com/ but can't find it.
Java-Plants.com where I bought it are down at the mo

It came as part of an unlabelled collection.

Help appreciated. Thanks!

Hmmm...I've been doing lots of research on the "roseafolia" and it doesn't
look like Flash Wilson's picture.Check out Tropica's description of it
http://www.tropica.com/productcard_1...023&mode=close and the
plant I have in my aquarium as well at http://dave.aquascape.picklyk.com in
the "Plant List" section...I might be wrong though

it is a true aquatic plant that requires bright light and iron rich

substrate.

AquaPhyllum replied to me and I think I now have the right ID

Looks just like it. Non aquatic, too.

Thanks everyone!
