Title pretty much says it all. Will any of the 'needle leaf' Rotala species grow in a low tech tank?
Looking for something like Rotala vietnam, wallichii, nanjenshan, etc...
I did read the low tech sticky list but its 14-15 pages of posts of people adding stuff or saying they had problems...
I'm aware I won't get as good as colors but will they grow good?
Thanks in advance

I have rotala indica in a dirted tank that's doing pretty well. GH 7, KH 5, every other week with EZ green, finnex planted+ light turned down to a morning and afternoon 4 hr light periods with lights off siesta at noon.
It has grown from 1 stem to 8 or so that are 2feet+ long. Color is just green with pink hue tips, but healthy.
I don't know if you'd call them needle leaf variety though?
