Emersed HC next to window?

Is it OK to grow emersed HC next to a window? If so, how much light(power compact 36W) and at what times should I use the fluoroscent light(day or night)?

Sorry if this is a repost, but I couldn't find my answer by doing a search. Going to be my first time, and want to everything right!

Thanks in advance!

Sunlight is enough light to grow it. How will you be growing it? In a humidity dome? In a jar? What substrate are you using?

I will be using Aqua Soil Amazonia. ADA Mini L and I would be using plastic wrap around it.

Sunlight is notorious for growing algae as well and if you have a light I would really consider using it over sunlight. Put it on an 8 hour photoperiod and you should grow just fine.
