I have water lettuce grow very, very well (pictures below) in my small tank with little to no water movement (RCS tank). In my other tank, it does okay, but this plant prefers to not move around and it does not like to get it's leaves wet.
Mine have grown like 2 1/2 inches in diameter! The roots go all the way to the substrate.
