@SanamMarik. Thanks a lot. It took less than 2.5 months to grow fully. the second pic was after fully trimmed.
About Needle leaf I feel following tips might work:
1. No Movement of the plant i.e think first where to keep the plant and then no more shifting.
2. Cool Water- Moss n Fern love cool water my tank temperature was always less than 25 degrees mostly around 24 degrees.
3. Low Light - Shady place or Low Light really helps them compared to bright light.
4. Patience- Which i lack a lot but.

I am not an Expert just shared what I experienced ...it might or might not work with you :)
