Eriocaulaceae species

I am soon going to be receiving tonina fluviatilis and just wondering if a...

pH of 6.4
kH of 2 degrees
gH of 10-12 degrees

Will be okay to grow it? What about tonina belem, and erio cinerum, mini? How will this plant do with my hardness parameters? And so far, do you think my hardness parameters is great for all plants alike? Is it enough?? Or the gH that high just aint gonna cut it for the tonina?
