Question Growing Java Fern in Low light?

I don't have a light on my tank since it's a kritter keeper, but I heard that you can raise Java Fern in low light. The only light comes from when I leave my lamp on and some light (not much) getting in throgh the windows. Can I add Java fern to my tank or would that be a problem? Also, what else would be a problem? I have a filter and a 2.5 gallon tank with low lighting, 1 Betta, and some silk plants. I can get rid of the silk plants if necessary.

Thanks I don't really care about how it grows cause less growing = less maintanance. At my LFS they sell them already pretty large, so that means good news for Neon since he gets a live plant (and for me because it looks cool XD)!

BTW Yes that's what I was wondering... I guess I worded the title wrong then..

If you can kill this stuff, I'd be amazed :P
