First we need to ensure we are talking the same plant. I suspect you mean Hygrophila angustifolia. Photo below. Common name, willow hygro. Occurs in Australia. Some sources have this as a variant of H. corymbosa. I haven't researched it far enough to say.

Sources also vary on light, some say bright, but most medium.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Yeah that's it.I had a little brain freeze there,sorry.I was thinking of trying it.It's $1.65 from sweetaquatics so if it doesn't work out it won't be a big loss anyway.

I have it in my tanks and it does well. I'm pruning it weekly. My tanks are medium light.

Yes in fact grows very well under low lights.
If you would like to check out a bunch of pic's of that very plant here in my tank http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/a...ge-deal-48375/
If you'd like I can gladly send you all H. Augustfolia as one package for cheap (unless of cause you care for some of the other plants too).

But I will have to tell you it does need trimming every so often or WILL grow out of the tank

I appreciate the offer.It's only $1.65 from Sweet Aquatics so I just added a 1 bunch to my order.I haven't had much luck with stem plants but I thought I would give them a try again and if it doesn't work out it won't be a big loss.
