Any idea what this is? I bought a mystery bunch with all sorts of different plants ages ago and I've never worked out what this is...

It didn't do well in the last tank I had it in, probably because of poor lighting and not enough nutrition in the gravel....so it's been pushing out all these leaves but don't know what it is 🤷‍♀️

When I first saw that pic I thought it reminded me of echinodorus, red diamond maybe, but the leafs are too narrow methinks.

Definitely not, the leaves are coming off just the one stem and yes, very narrow leaves...never seen one like this before, whatever it is!

Hygrophila Angustifolia?
Hmm, leaves look a bit wider on augustifolia compared to your pic.

Quite close though so not completely discounting that.
