This could be a normal occurrence that happens when plants transition from emerged to submersed growth. I know for sure with baby tears that alot of it will die back when you flood the tank, but then start to regrow in it's submersed state.

My advice is to wait a few weeks. Alot of it will turn translucent and die, but new growth should start to appear. 30 ppm CO2 injection helps alot during this transition, and since you are using low tech your results will probably be subpar given the species your trying.

As a side note it is possible to grow these species with no CO2 injection, but I personally wouldn't start them emmersed because the shock of submersing them is too much without CO2.
