Need Help with Plant Identification -- Figure it out :)

I ordered Rotala Sp. Pearl, and they grow really nice in my tank. After a while one plant from those batch of rotala pearl leaves keep growing bigger and bigger, and grow into a totally different appearance, very beautiful, but I am not sure if it's still the same plant, or is it a different stem being mixed in.

From one stem, it grows to several. To the left corner, that's my rotala sp pearl.

It grows pretty fast in my high tech planted tank.
The top 1st photo was taken May 16th. And this was taken yesterday June 10th.
All those stems are from one single stem.

Attached my rotala sp pearl photo.

Thanks for plantedtank forum members' help.
This is rotala macrandra green. Rotal sp Pearl is a mutationfrom rotala macrandra green. Some mutation strain is not stable and ends up reverting back.

Either way, those are both beautiful plants I love :)
