Anyone growing this plant? I was originally looking for some ground cover for my large tank, but the LFS sold me this as they were out of the grasses. After a bit of research I decided it was unsuitable for what I wanted, so I left it in my 10 gallon.

It's startting to turn a little yellow now, which I assume is from too little light? The current setup only has 26W, but I'll soon be going to 2x36. :eek: I don't intend to run both bulbs full time. The reddish Sword is also looking a little peckish, but this could be my crappy substrate. Chaning to Eco Complete soon.
