I have it at 2 watts/gal and it's 4-5 inches max. I have seen two different
plants being sold as "tenellus". One is somewhat larger and a brighter green
and wider leaf(still only 6-7 inches in 2watts but seems more light hungry).
The other is a smaller narrowleaf with a reddish tinge to it. Amano has it
in several of his plantings in his books. It stays 4 inches or less.
