I've grown it successfully in a low tech tank before.

I found that it was more high-maintenance when it comes to lighting. If I didn't keep my lights on for at least 8-hrs per day then the leaves would begin to wilt and fall off. I eventually gave away this bundle because it was just too fragile of a plant.

Thnx guys, for the reply. Also came to know that, many fish would nip at the leaves and finally uproot this plant.!! Is it so...!? And, if yes, is there any selected fish species which are 'not recommended' to be kept with this plants?
