Growing my own plants

I am fairly new to this forum and am extremely impressed with all of the info I have received . Thanks to all.
My question is : I have been upgrading my 55g and proceeding with plants.
I am starting out with beginner plants as I am still low tech, I have had a bunch of " stratlers" that I have placed in a 10g down in my fish room. What is the best way to "grow my own" to multiply and transfer to my 55g. I am starting out with some Sagittaria, Dwarf and vals. Med light and DIY CO2,temp 78f. They are planted now in Seachem Flourite Red.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Happy Holidays to all.

Just plant them with good fert soil, some liquid fert, good light, CO2 and then just sit back and wait. Vals and dwarf sag should spread like wild fire soon enough.

If it's just a plant only growout tank Blast the co2 I see your using a diy co2 , add 1 or 2 more bottles to it there is no danger to the plants getting gassed only fish and if you just have plants in the tank your good to go
