The entire genus is a legitimate flowering bunch of plants.  Other species 
require more light to survive than is generally available in aquariums.  I'm 
curious about your lighting, tank size, plant food, etc, as I'm thinking 
about trying other nymphoides indoors in an intense light tank (like a ten 
gallon with 50-60 watts).
