Does it look like hydrocotyle sp. Japan? The leaves look very similar.

It reminds me of a baby crypt. Does each leaf come from the bottom crown each on it's own stem?

Not sure what you mean by first half but each leaf does have its own stem

The crown is the growing point that leaves/stems on plants like crypts and swords grow from. The roots grow under the crown. Since each left is growing off it's own stem I think it's a crypt.

I hate to say it but you could probably draw a better pic than those photos!

It's definitely not Hydrocotyle, I agree with those that said it looks like some species of crypt. Or perhaps a sword, but most likely a crypt. Let it grow, get some better pics, and we'll be able to get you a more accurate ID. Congrats on the bonus plant! Freebees are always nice!
