When I had this plant in a medium to low light tank I planted them were the leaves were about an 1/2" apart. The leaves and the stem eventually took off and filled in the gap but not enough so the whole plant couldn't get light. They did well for me but if they don't get enough light the will not make it. Also keep in mind this plant does well floating so if they won't grow for you planted try them that way.
