Kathyy The plant dies? Wouldn't it slow down its growth and then you know to add more root tabs?

Yet using root tab could be a burden overtimes as you always have to make sure constant supply is provided so the plant won't die

So i am here to seek for plants that will survive and thrive in:
1) high lights
2) co2 ( i am using fluval pressurized co2 for max 15gal)
3) pure gravel as substrate


currently i have some riccia, Christmas moss and nana anubias in the tank and they are doing great. Any comment is appreciated
You can always use the root tabs for substrate...
