High light and more light and then some more light.
And yes, I used to sell a lot until I almost depleted my 'inventory'.

The last picture is of Hygrophilia corymbosa, the rest are of Hygro Corymbosa 'Siamensis'. I also keep 'Kompakt' and Angustifolia.

Regular H. corymbosa easily gets x2 the size of 'Siamensis', all the way up to the top of a 24" tank. It's happy to go emergent and at one time I kept 1/2 of the same plant in and 1/2 out of the water. Emergent, it blooms constantly with small flowers that make quiet a mess. IME 'Siamensis' and 'Kompakt' are about the same in size. I keep one 'Siamensis' in a 12g long at ~5" and very bushy - just have to trim it every couple of weeks or so.
