They are called 'low light' plants because they can tolerate lower light levels, not because they prefer lower light levels. Most low light plants will do great at high light levels. The other reason plants are called 'low light' is because they have been covered with algae in some guys tank and the only way he could grow it algae free was to use a lower light level, think Madagascar Lace plant. Sad thing is that lace plants LOVE high light.
