No, and no, James. Water sprite is Ceratopteris thalictroides, water wisteria is Hygrophila difformis. Neither will live for long in low light, sorry. You'd need at least 3 watts per gallon full spectrum light, with four or more better, to succeed with those plants. Neither is difficult to grow in bright light with an enriched substrate.

I have never had a proble growing either one. Wether I had the current fixtur eI have now which is right at 3 w/g or when I used the standard hood which was 1.8 w/g. They always grew like a weed for me. That is when I added enough nitrates to feed them.
