Sorry for the slow response. I hadn't checked this post. I have some now. It grows pretty fast but it is manageable. I have to pull a bunch out once a month. Light does get through it but is is shaded. I have mine in a 25 gallon high tank with 65 watts of light and Co2
. I have crypts, java fern (narrow leaf and regular), flame moss, and a taiwan banana plant in there. They all grow fine. Since it is a high tank I did not want to use HC or some other high light ground cover. If you culled the plant more frequently than I do and had higher light you would probably be ok anyway. Unlike duckweed you can actually eliminate this plant fairly easily if it doesn't work out.
Bump on this thread. I have probably 3 portions. I have one potentially sold already so I at least have 2.
