has been growing quite well for almost one year.  I think some of the 
keys, which apply to most aquatic plants as well, is good lighting and 
frequent partial water changes.  I use 4-30 watt bulbs in my 35 gal. tank 
and change a minimum of 50% of the water each week.  I also have inserted 
laterite in the form of balls into the gravel, use DIY CO2, and 
supplement the water with various iron supplements.

A good complement to aquatic plants are orchids.
