I had no luck with these. Had them with wendtii, wendtii thrives, the becketii I lost them all except one, which grows slowly.

This plant has been very hardy for me, it grows and reproduces quick in a low tech planted aquarium with medium to high light.. also this is one very few plants that can be put with silver dollars. they don't seem to like this one

According to the USDA, the only place in North America that Cryptocoryne becketti can be found introduced and growing wild is in Hays County, Texas, so if you live near there, good luck collecting some freebies! There are no legal issues regarding this species.
