The image shows a sign/label for Heteranthera zosterifolia. but the larger foliage does not match that plant so the image is misleading.

I have not yet found an image that is not protected by copyright but I could take a photo at an aquarium store as this is a popular aquarium plant.

Here is a link to an image of H. zosterifolia showing the correct foliage at the Copenhagen Botanical Garden:

Doing a Google Image search omitting 'Copenhagen Botanical Garden; the result shows the H. zosterifolia:

Thank you
