Anybody have this thriving in a nonCO2 tank? If so I'd like to know what your tank parameters are. I'm interested in this plant, but I'm not sure if it will survive in my tank.

C helferi loves CO2, rich substrate and ferts
I have not seen it thrive in a non CO2 tank. You could look to get a tall crypt iin its place....dose excel....

Cool, I figured that, but I was hoping somebody would be lucky enough to have growni t without co2. I'm planning to get either cryptocoryn balansae or retrospiralis. I was hoping to get cyperus helferi, but I guess that's out of the question.
