Imo, it should do very well in a shallow soil tank (10g maybe?) as a background plant.

Otherwise, just give it root tabs.

Its in a 29 gallon tank that is about 3/4 or less of water as I have some emersed plants growing above the water line and still have the glass top on for the lights to sit on.
