All lotus's can outgrow a 10g tank. But in low light it takes time for the plant to outgrow(I have 2 plants plus the bulb). It does take the time to grow though so it can be a nice midground plant in a 10g.

Here is a link to Monga Bay Biotope pages:

I too try and match things up more closely to habitats. It may be difficult to start so always go by certain regions and then narrow it down by availability and then cross reference.

Happy Plantings ya'll.
