I know with red tigers they can be picky when they sprout. The main thing is gettign them to sprout. When I first bought mine it was in that bulb kit that you would get at walmart. Put it in OScar's tank didn't do anything so I took it out and it sat next to the tank for probably a good 6 months. When I set up my sorority tank I dropped it in there on a whim and it sprouted almost instantly. For awhile it sprout a new leaf every week that would grow from the bottom and go up before the next one started.
For care I didn't add any add nuterients or anythign special. He sits ont he lighter part of my tank so a bright bulb is your best bet(have fun with algae if your tank is anything like mine..). Either way this is a very pretty plant once it gets started.
I wish I had pictures of when it first started. Recently I didn't take much care o it and it didn't have a lot of light for awhile and it lost all of its leaves and was not much bigger then the bulb itself. After redoing the tank it now looks like this:
