I suspect that CO2 fertilization and good light are necessary because I've
grown a carpet of glosso fairly quickly without a super rich substrate. I
personally think that your substrate will prove to be too rich and cause
problems down the road.

 but my tank is also 24 inches deep (top to bottom)

This is pretty deep for a lot of light to get right down to gravel level,
but it is growing so that's something.
