This plant will survive in under medium light conditions but will only reach its prime under high light, co2 and complete regiment of ferts. This one is inclined to do better in acidic water. Failing to provide any of these will result in stunting, leaf loss and event death.
When conditions are right, the plant will turn from a green/brown color to a vibrant pink on its leaves. This is a rare plant that is not sold at retail and is best found through the hobbyist channels.
