Pilea involucrata 'Norfolk'

I've been trying for hours to find out myself if I could grow this plant in a riparium setup, but to no avail. I know you can grow other pilea species in ripariums, but what about Pilea involucrata 'Norfolk'? Also, if I can, how do I go about doing so? I've never done anything riparium, but love the idea of plants growing up out of my tank. Any help would be appreciated and feel free to overwhelm me with info!

I tried that one and it didn't grow very well.

There is however a similar one, Pilea 'Silver Tree', that grows just fine in a riparium.

The various Pilea for ripariums should be planted on a trellis raft. They don't root very well in riparium planters. Here's a picture...
