Am I missing Something?

I have just set up a new 35litre planted nano tank it has been running for 6 days. Everything is going great apart from an issue with one plant. I have Eleocharis SP Mini as a carpet plant. When I planted this it was a lush green but has now turned very pale. I seems to be growing well but is looking under the weather, there also seems to be a slight pale brown towards the base. All my other plants are thriving and have already shown some growth. Is there something i'm missing. My setup is as follows:

35 litre tank (9 gallon)
Eheim ecco pro 130 external filter
Lighting: 1 x TMC Grobeam (Natural Daylight) and a Boyu T8 Luminaire with 2x 8w Arcadia Freshwater Bulbs and 1 x 8w Arcadia Original Tropical Bulb which run for 9 hours.
TMC Expert CO2 Pressurised Set
Fertilisers: JBL Ferropol weekly, JBL 24 daily.
Substrate: 1 inch of Tetra Complete Substrate cover with 1 inch of 1mm gravel/sand.

I would be very greatful for any advice.

It's most likely transitioning from emmersed growth to submersed growth.
