Spiral Val issues?

Hello! I am brand new to the planted tank world and am only on month two. When I first got my val it was gorgeous and 8-10 inches tall. But, I planted it too deep and almost lost everything. I re-planted it correctly and it sent out two new leaves (after everything nearly melted off), but they've stagnated at about 3 inches, curled. No upward growth and they seem to have stagnated. Some more details below:

5 gallon tank (marine-land portrait if that helps any)
Light: NICREW ClassicLED Plus LED Aquarium Light, Full Spectrum Fish Tank Light for Freshwater, 12 to 18-inch
Ferts: flourish root tabs and Aquarium Co-Op Easy Green (dose once a week)

Im sure you all need more parameters, so just let me know what you need!

My other plants are doing great: dwarf lily, anubias, and hornwort. These are all growing like a bat out of hell. Not sure what I'm doing wrong with the spiral val or if i just need to be patient!
