Here I am back again
I bought all my plants from Galiff street and transported all with me to Nawa City through Train, but during this process on month of June when Temp was extreme and I lost 90% of my plants. So I had to start with....
4 cutting of H. Pinnatifida
Java Moss all turned brown
Just Only 2 steam of monte Carlo
2 steam of HM

That's all I had to start with
The Challenge starts here and continue

After loosing most of my plants [SEEDLING] i decided to those few plants to full the box. It's final that i have to play out of copybook style.
So manipulation started initially I started with 14 watt led and immediately upgraded it to 20 watt after 2 days. Doubled the dosing micro and macro but in case of CO2 I had DIY only can't do more with it. So finally after 10 days plants started responding. Pic follows date wise.

I targeted to make the H Pinnatifida red and cut down N dosing to starve the pinnatifida. as the plants have capabilities to tolerate low nutrition value and start to show their anger and turned light reddish on top as you can see the colour difference pinnatifida on top and at bottom.

Welcome to the forum! Glad you found some plants that are working for your tank. Many seeds are no good sadly and are sold by scammers.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.

Actually I bought all emersed plants from Kolkata India and travelled 1800 km by train and reached Thar desert Rajasthan India and on June temp was 48C. And in desert it is impossible to availability of any aquarium products.
