Hi, I see buces are becoming more and more popular in the hobby. I am looking to start with a few plants myself and looking for advice from experienced collectors.

Is CO2 required for this plant to succeed in submersed form? I currently don't have the means to a CO2 setup, would dosing excel work as well? Do these plants do better in high flow areas? Photoperiod of 7 hours enough (finnex fugeray led)?

I would like to keep them in my shrimp tank with Amazonia soil and parameters as such:
TDS 125-140
Gh 6
Kh 0
Temp 23

Any other tips and recommendations for a newb would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
