Dwarf baby tears tips

Hey guys I have a 20 gallon planted tank that is almost done cycling.
I am using eco complete and a clamp on lamp/light with a 100 watt, 5000 kelvin, CFL bulb.
I want a small carpet of dwarf baby tears. However I have no co2 at the moment, but I can run DIY co2. I hear in order to grow baby tears, you need pressurized co2, but Dustin from DUSTINSFISHTANKS, grows them fine without any co2. Also, I want a carpet in one area in the middle of the aquarium. The right and left sides of the aquarium are already moderately/heavily planted with Ludwigia, Italian Val, and Rotala. If I plant the Dwarf baby tears in the middle, will the Dwarf baby tears start spreading where the other plants are?

Are you sure its the "dwarf" one that Dustin planted?
I remember seeing the video, but he had the normal baby tears.

Dwarf baby tears will spread all over the place given time and a good environment. If you don't have pressurized CO2, however, I doubt it will spread much.

If you want a carpet, you will need co2
