Questions on Moneywort

I've had experience with moneywort in my 65 gallon back home (but that's with lighting...)

When I was at the store I decided to pick up a plant for my 5.5 gallon tank. However, being a 5.5 gallon tank it doesn't have direct tank lighting. The room lights are kept on constantly and moneywort was the only plant listed as moderate lighting at the store. Will this be enough or should I move it to my lit tank to make sure it survives?

Thanks :)

I dont think it would be suffice, Moneywort are low light plants but that may be too low. Im no expert with lighting so maybe someone with more light experience can help both of us with indirect lighting. :)

A room light would not be bright enough. You could try a desk lamp next to the tank.
