Members of this genus, with the exception of banana plants, require 
tremendous amounts of light. Even at 4 watts per gallon, you are nowhere near 
what they receive outside.  Try putting it in a ten gallon tank and run a 
couple of those screw-in flourescent tubes in an old incandescent light hood. 
 The brightest oned available.  THen add a fan intothe hood to keep the tank 

Good luck
