Microsorum pteropus ''Red'' and "narrow"

i have had some Microsorum pteropus ''Red'' and Microsorum pteropus ''Narrow'' for about 2 month now, and i have not seen any sign of growth! can somebody tell me what am i doing wrong? i have about 450w of lighting above a 110g tank, pressurized co2, balanced fert. everything is growing nuts in my tank except these two plants.

are they experiencing a dormant period or something?

No, no dormant period just a really slow growing plant. I've had a narrow-leaf Java for 2 years now and it's only tripled in size.

"red"? Never heard of that one, I hope it grows so you can send me clippings

Any other problems with the plants? Are the leaves healthy-looking?

Of course, they are probably growing just *very* slowly. I've found that consistent nitrates of >5ppm is key.
