I grow mine in a low light tank, no CO2 or ferts. They are doing well, but they produce only about one new leaf per month.

I have a similar setup, but I find that natural sunlight from the window serves more as supplementary light, rather than a primary light source. I have T8 bulbs over my tank as the primary light.
