I grow this plant in my 55 gal tank and it does beautifully. I grow it under LED lights. It also gets some sun from a western window accross the room. The first few pics here dont look like the Wisteria (Hygrophila difformis) I bought from the Aquarium shop and thats the tag that came with it. Mine looks like the 4th pic by Growin.
