Not really. Nearly all grass- like plants require high lighting and CO2. I recently invested in some that were supposed to be able to grow in Moderate lights and not doing well at under under my new Nova light.
Low lighting does not mean low light like stock lights, BTW. When speaking of low light plants, it means 1-2 watts of planted tank lights, not the hood lights that come on your tank. Those are only for us to view the fish, not for growing much of anything altho a few have been lucky enough to grow a few things like anubias or java fern. (Not in my case.)
