Yes. There are many factors in these situations. I know my light was chief, but I also have very soft water and back then I was not adding Equilibrium (the "hard" minerals) and this may have been a factor in my situation.
Not every plant species will thrive in every aquarium, due to one or more of the factors. And there is alleolopathy to think about too. Over the years I have tried a number of plants, and some thrived while others managed and some didn't even do that well. I just keep with the ones that work in my situation. Most of the plants in my tanks now are either the originals from some 14 years ago, or their "descendants."
