Growing out some "glosso"

The potted "glosso" I purchased was weak. At $4.99/pot, it was definitely overpriced considering the condition of the plant. Regardless, I took a pot home, planted whatever I could save and let it grow. Here it is after about a month in a 2.5 gallon farm tank. I CO2 inject the tank with a DIY setup and a glass diffuser. The filter is the smallest Penn Plax Cascade (modified with an appropriately sized Aquaclear sponge), and I use a Coralife Compact Florescent fixture with two 6700K tubes. Slow to grow, I may have a nice specimen in several months.
