If the lighting in your tank is by the hood that came with it, with the plants you are showing that would be enough light for the plants . I see you have some Asian water fern and some crested Java plants both of these need only low lighting to survive. Have you fed the plants. (I mean did you put in plant tabs when you planted them? Have you started to use Flourish which is a plant food or Fertilizer supplement. These would be a good way to help the growth of your plants. How long does the light stay on in the tank? if more than 8 hours then cut back the time the light is on to 8 hours. Doing these things will help your plants and wont hurt your betta.
