5 gallon LED lit fish tank with hornwort, crypt, and cardinal plant

I was wondering what I can do if anything to improve upon the conditions for my aquarium plants. They don't generally have any specialized lighting as it is a 5 gallon. I dose every other day with seachem PRIME and I bought a plant specific substrate from my local fish store. (Eco complete). Would it be better to put it in front of a window, since the LED is all the light they have or soon will have? Thanks in advance.

Prime is a water conditioner - it detoxifies chlorine and ammonia - not a fertilizer. You shouldn't need to be dosing it except for when you do a water change with tap water.

How are the plants looking? Do you have specific concerns about them or just looking for a bit more vigorous growth?
