Rotala Sp Green Conditions?

Hi -

I am going to add a bunch of rotala sp. green to my 29 gallon. It will be my first time growing the plant, and I was wondering how to keep it healthy.

I have 1.7 wpg (t5 ho), dose flourish and excel, flourite sand substrate and keep my tank at 82 degrees.

Do I need to change anything?

Do I need to add more nutrients? I know very very little about nutrients, so details about specific products and dosing would go a long way to educating this newbie! lol

Thanks in advance!

No special requirements are needed. Its a fairly hardy plant and should be fine. It might get a bit leggy at your light levels however.
