I had it growing it a 2.5 g tank in dirt with no co2. I fertilized the water column regularly. It is a pretty hardy plant and colors up nicely under a couple of cfls.

I have this plant growing in a terrarium right now and it is doing great. I would note that the last one I had I did drown by keeping it too wet. FWIW.
