I only briefly grew some, so I cant add too much- I would definitely look into freshwater mangrove forests in southeast asia and find what you can about their natural habitat. They need tons of light, benefit from a deep substrate (sand or mud in the wild) , and would certainly appreciate a fair bit of nutrients. How have you been growing them previously?
I have been growing them a few different ways , I have put them in hang out back filters, and I have floated them in the floater using some float -type material and I have used shower caddys on the glass.
I have about a dozen propagules that are a year and a half old. My turtle ate all the tops off them at one point so they've had to restart growing once, but I find them to be entirely undemanding. I have some in a pot in the window with soil & a sand cap, and some shoved in the sand sticking out of my guppy tank and they're both happy.
I think they really need to be in the substrate.
