I have experienced exactly the same problem in my tank, it is the only plant causing me problems (it did quite well the first two years http://home.scarlet.be/~tvelst/sugar22.JPG). I added nutrients in the substrate and is taking a new start at the moment. ..

I have grown it in bare bottom tanks.

Truvu 100g Flourite, wet/dry, AHSupply 302w PC, PinPoint controller
10gallon15w T6+15w T8
55gallon40w T6 ODNO4x, no CO2. Discus grow out.
10gallon Tonina tank, 2x15w T6 ODNO 4x
---------------------
I will do aquascapes after I collect all the plant species and grow them to perfection.

In that case, I would venture to guess that they can.
