once the roots establish, you'll have new growth in no time at all

I run 6.0 ph for my ponts 2 gh tap water, also in peat as you.
Low to mid light with light water movement.
Peat doesn't have much in terms of nutrients. I would suggest light dose ferts at roots. I find growth to be rather quick regarding this species.

It's a weed for me and I don't even use root tabs.

You can probably throw this plant in the sewer and it would grow. Very easy plant and very good for the shrimp tank since its roots move the substrate around thus getting rid of "dead" pockets.

It is a runner - new plants appear at a distance from one another. Mine never carried very many leaves per plant. Hope you like it!
