Has anyone had any success in keeping crypt cordata and pontederiifolia in high light tanks with pressurized CO2?

Have not tried cordata, but my pontederiifolia does at least 1 leaf a week. Running 192W on a 46 bow with co2.
I have 440 watts on a 75 and my pontederiifolia does OK. It never gets more than 3-5 leaves on it. I'm not sure if this is normal for the plant. I saw some in the ADG gallery that only had a few leaves on them. They have much less light so I'm thinking this might be the norm.

They never sprout more than a few leaves in my tanks--low or high light.
i put them in the darker spots of the tank and they are doing fine. they grow quite slow though.
Both my pontederiifolia and cordata do well in high light and co2
