To be honest, our tank, just about every plant in there pretty much melted for the first 2-3 weeks. I think most were grown emersed and only recently introduced to the aquarium tanks we bought them from. Now they are starting to sprout new, green leaves like mad. I'm only running one T8 and a T5, gravel with Seachem Root Tabs, and dosing liquid fertilizers (Seachem's line), and one of those disposable cartridge CO2 kits. They did look absolutely HORRIFIC, but now everyone's growing like mad. We have Wysteria, Willow Moss, Java Moss, an Anubias (no idea the type), DHG, what I believe to be rotala and a ball with a plant attached that I don't know the name of. After they all settled in, they are all growing like mad. The Moss and the ball are growing very very fast, same with the Wysteria and the rotala.
It could just be them adjusting, ours were looking horrific. We thought they were all doing horrible until I had to pull out the Wysteria to trim the dead parts off, and realized it had very, very long roots, and brought up a bunch of gravel with it too.
I'd just give it some time(:
