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
