Murdannia loriformis or bracteata?

Sorry, I think, I didn't send this Message(I think, an accident has happened):

So, again:

I don't know - is it bracteata or loriformis:

Are you able to view(see) the 3 pics in big?

If not, let me know it!

The German gardeners can't help me, could you?

Sorry about my grammatically writing...

Ich freue mich auf Antworten von EUCH!

I am happy, to read your answers.

Assuming it is one of the two, you should be able to tell by the following descriptions on eFloras. The thing that sticks out to me when I very quickly skimmed the descriptions is that M bracteata grows from horizontal rhizomes while M loriformis has no rhizomes.

Murdannia bracteata: http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=3&taxon_id=240001471

Murdannia loriformis: http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=3&taxon_id=240001477

Below is the key to the Murdannia genus for China which includes both species.
