[APD] Nymphoides question

I haven't had a tank for a couple years, but I kind of have a strange idea.  I was always interested in Nymphoides, but they are considered very high light and relatively shallow water( recommended 6 inches or less) except for the species generally referred to as the "banana plant" which I have kept successfully in soft water with low light planted at the bottom of a 29gallon "tall" tank.  They are therefore usually recommended for outdoor ponds.

I have a couple of Cheese ball tubs, or jars, or whatever you want to call them, one is two gallons, and the other three.  I also have been gearing up the light levels in my living room to handle a split-leaf Monstera.  I think I can probably get several of the other Nymphoides to grow if I put a little peat and gravel in the bottom of one of these, and set it out in my very brightly lit parlor.  Add a couple of endlers or platys and you have a complete aquarium.

Anybody have experience with these plants indoors?
