"this is a high light plant. i have found that 14 hours of strong aquarium light are necessary for the plant to produce healthy growth. ideally, you want this plant to grow long, slender, rose to red colored leaves at the top. if the light requirements are not met, you will end up with scraggly grey green growth, and ultimately death of the plant. This is also a good plant for discus tanks, because it can quickly grow to the surface, giving discus a sense of security. when the stems begin to curl to stay underwater, cut off about 1/3-1/2 of the top part of the plant and replant. If there are any new shoots at the bottom of the old stem, allow them to grow out to make more plants. this plant is a fairly heavy feeder, but can do just fine in plain washed gravel, and mine even tolerates an undergravel filter. I would put in some sort of nutrient supplement. dont be scared off by the horror stories, just follow the heavy light heavy feed rule, and you should be sucessful."
