I found it to grow well in low-light. But, yes, it did grow 20" tall. It
spred rapidly horizontally as well, and is trying to take over. ;-) The
set-up was 40-gallon with 60w of light (fluorecent tubes that came with
the hood and have been running for one and a half years). 1.5 w/gal
sounds low-light, although the watt/gal has been trashed a bit here
recently... One DIY yeast CO2 bottle, as well.

Also, once it gets tall, it's closer to the light and light becomes less
of an issue... But in my tanks I wouldn't even think of trying to use it
as a foreground plant.
