That Depends on if your Cycling Co2 in the tank or not?
Co2 Will Help it to Grow Along with Good Lighting.
Hope This Helps.

I had those lovely plants before. However, a lid on the tank is a bad idea as they cannot tolerate condensation forming on their leaves. I placed them in my pond and they multiply more rapidly than in the tank. A bit messy but the roots provide perfect sanctuary for fry.:)
