Default R magenta and mini not growing

I have the following plants in my 10 gallon high tech tank:

Eleocharis sp. 'Belem'
Ludwigia arcuata
Ludwigia senegalensis
Riccardia chamedryfolia
Rotala indica (Ammania sp. Bonsai)
Rotala sp. 'pearl'
Rotala sp. 'Yao yai'
Rotala magenta
Rotala mini

The tank has been set up for around a month now. It is lit by 3 100 watt equivalent CFL bulb (actual wattage is 23 watts) in aluminum reflectors. The bulbs rest on top of the tank's glass cover, and lights are on from 2-10 each day. Substrate is ADA powersand and aqua soil. CO2 is 3 bps. I am dosing EI. I do a 75% wc weekly.

The R. magenta and mini aren't growing very well. The mini grows green and stunted, while the magenta just fails to grow. This confuses me because all the other plants on the list are growing well. What could be causing this lack of growth?
