these are pretty plants that make good foreground plants. they also look nice attached to bogwood. because of their slow growth, be careful as they can become easily colonised by algae. other than that they are a great plant and once established grow quite happily. i haven't fertilized mine yet, but just with co2 and good lighting they are growing fine.

I purchased 2 bareroot for a 10G, planted in substrate(eco-complete), w/ a couple of False Juli's, and an Otocinclus, along with some neons, no worries so far. Beautiful, although be aware they are Slow growing. Hard algae is an issue.

I have this under 2 cfl's in a 20h with pressurized co2 and it is growing faster than any other plant. 4 new leaves in about a month. Don't plant deep in substrate, attach it to rocks, driftwood or lightly set it on the substrate
