Can water hyacinths grow in tropical aquarium and how much light do they need?

You can keep water hyacinths alive for a few months, but they need an open tank and terribly much light. Even directly under my HQL bulbs with maybe 30 cm space between plants and light source, mine sooner or later die off.

I never heard that anyone had kept them longer than maybe 6 months. Even people with lots of experience didnt make it.

Thanks, that's about how long I plan on keeping it any way.
