Plant ID help!

Hey all, I've got this mystery plant that I would like ID'd. I got it at this previous monthly auction, I think it was from Roy? Any idea?

Hi bronzefighter,

It looks like a stem of Persicaria sp 'Kawagoeanum'.  It looks like it has a bit of a deficiency.  You might try adding some Ca and Mg to your tank.  Seachem Equilibrium is a good way to dose these two nutrients (and several others) if you don't want to deal with individual chemicals.

Thank you Roy! I think the color is mostly due to the camera, as it does have a nice rich reddish/pink to it, and the fact that I accidently left it in the bag sitting on top of the tank for a day.
