Hi, How Do You Know Your Co2 Is Sufficiant?

I got my water parameters to PH 7.1 and KH of 4.5, I have CO2 injection. How will I know the plants are sucking it up? I have good plant growth (except for my Crypt. Wenditti and Sag.)? I dont have any Riccia or Gollastigma that pearl, is my Ludwigi supposed to pearl or my giant Hygro?
I guess my question is do plant need to be pearling in order to know if they are sucking up the CO2?

not pearling

Pearling is not the key, it just looks cool.

Plant growth and health is the key. CO2 is very helpful, but light is essential, and fertilizers come third in importance.

The rooted plants will need some time to get over transplant shock and may have to shed emersed grown leaves, so give them some time before you add fertilizers. Too soon and you just feed algae -- like putting food on the table when no one is home, it just draws cockroaches.

Huh? It was spelled correctly... but you are missing an apostrophe and e (you're not your)

Ah, the perils of correcting someone else's grammer!

Oh the irony!

As someone pointed out, privately....."Anyway, you may want to fix the spelling of grammar (not grammer) before someone calls you on it. "

LOL, too funny! Some sort of Murphy's Law that when correcting another's grammar, you will mess it up somehow...

Hanging my head in shame....

Interesting... instead of thanking Ann for her input, you are concerned about spelling?!
