Struggling to get subwassertang to grow

I cant get this stuff to grow... I got mini christmas moss, 2 different java ferns, some crypts and standard and petite mini anubis all growing, but I want the subwassertang to and it just not. Its been months, is there something I could check for? I thought this stuff was like weeds..

What is your temperature range, and what is your flow like? I grow a LOT of subwassertang, a lot of the times I just leave it alone, and it'd do fine in general.

My temperature is usually 72-78 degrees, summer time gets warmer but they look cooler temps in my experience, and a decent flow.

Roughly the same temps, about 70-76 depending on the ambient temp in the house. I did just move it more into the path of one of the power heads so hopefully it gets more flow. It looks dark vibrant green like its alive. it just doesnt grow..
