1x14watt lighting (0,4 wpg)
no co2
liquid fertilizer only
27-25 degree celcius (about 77 fahrenheit)
the substrate is black scoria, common natural sand/pebbles
i read that HC survives in low light plant but i want to make sure before buy that plant, thanks for any answears and suggestions. regards.
It MIGHT survive, but I strongly doubt you'd see much growth, and very likely it would shed leaves and get very "leggy" looking. I'd personally double that light level before trying it.
