 I  mentioned  it  in  my  earlier  post.  It  requires  medium  to  slightly  hard  water.  Medium  to  high  light.  Substrate  is  not  important.  Ensure  enough  nitrate  in  water  column  .  Also  good  water  flow.
 
 Easy  plant  to  grow.
 
 Regards

 @  Rana  ..
 
 I  experimented  with  this  plant  in  three  diff  conditions.  
 
 1st  One  is  In  Glass  Aquarium(Indoor  with  Artificial  Lights)These  leaves  growing  long  nearly  2  ft  and  then  breaking  down  in  middle.  New  Leaves  are  Fresh  Green  in  color  and  the  Freshness  and  color  remains  for  15-20  days..(Fresh  leaves  can  be  seen  in  1st  Pic.)
 
 Here  is  the  problem  that  Plant  facing  in  the  tank...  
 Tank  Size-  6  g  
 Light-  13  watts  (  8  watt  T4  +  5  w  New  CFL)
 Substrate-  Laterite  
 WC-Weekly
 No  Ferti,No  CO2
 
 Its  Covered  with  some  Algae,which  can  be  removed  by  hand..This  Algae  is  not  soft  but  has  a  hard  feeling  like  very  fine  sand  or  rangoli  taken  in  pinch.(No  smell  though)

 your  tank  is  too  small  to  grow  vals.  That  could  be  the  reason  for  breaking  down  in  the  middle.  Consider  changing  to  a  bigger  set  up.
 
 I  think  it  is  diatoms.  You  need  to  increase  your  light  intensity.

 Thank  You  Rana....   
 
 Its  not  my  planted  tank  setup  in  there..  just  to  get  plants  growing,  i  tried  in  this  tank.  
 
 Second  I  Planted  these  plants  in  glass  aquarium  and  was  placed  outside  in  the  garden.  Where  It  was  getting  Sunlight.  Its  in  the  Sunlight  for  the  hrs  sun  shines  in  the  sky..  Smile   
    Here  I  Found  these  plants  were  very  THIN  and  algae  was  very  very  less  compared  to  tank  inside  house.    Here  water  temp  was  obviously  high.  
 
 And  Another  Container  was  placed  in  the  Sunlight  in  garden  but  this  was  a  big  Thermocol  IceBox.  
 Here  I  found  Water  Temp  was  not  at  all  raised.At  noon  also  i  could  feel  COOL  water  in  the  box.  here  plants  grew  fast  and  multiplied  fast.  But  they  did  not  grew  tall.  All  the  plants  here  remained  5-6  inch  in  height/length.  And  the  Best  Part  was  here  the  ALGAE  was  MINIMAL...   Thumb Up  
 
 p.s.  All  these  data  collected  with  same  substrate  and  same  time  frame  i.e.  1  month..  
 
 Hope  someone  could  comeup  with  a  conclusion  and  solution  for  the  first  problem  of  Rough  Algae.
