U. prehensilis Culture Question

Hi all,

I'm having some problems getting my U. prehensilis to grow. I got it
about two months ago and it never seemed to establish itself and has
actually seemed to go down hill lately. I'm growing it with my other
utrics in a semi-covered aquarium (about 90% covered) in 1-1.5 inches
in a south facing window about two feet into the room. The other
utrics are all doing quite well in these conditions so I'm guessing
that U. prehensilis must want something different, but I don't know
what. If anyone can supply me with the specif conditions that U.
prehensilis wants, I would greatly appreciate it.
