Just wait about six months, the price will drop. Just like Buc. They grow even faster.
fwiw Kasselmann says they are hardy but slow growing and put on roots slowly. She suggests they do not grow emersed well unless kept in high humidity.
Don't have much experience myself but From everything I have gathered, slow growing and low demand plant. Many keep them in shrimp tanks, bury rhizome and just expose leaves.
