So I was at a LFS and they have a small tank with some plants for sale. They actually do not look all that healthy, but I noticed they had some Baby Tears and Dwarf Baby Tears.
I came back a couple days later and the Baby Tears looked like crap or were gone. And there was one bunch of Dwarf Baby Tears that actually looked decent. I did a quick search and thought I had read that these were the ones that could be done with no CO2 as long as you perform a DSM with them.
I admittedly did not do a ton of searching. I purchased them and got home and did more research after putting them in my upstart 10 gallon. Come to realize these do need CO2, although I have read some information on people getting them to carpet without CO2, just very rarely.
My question is, did I waste my money? Or do they stand a chance? I would hate to delay starting this 10 gallon waiting a month for them to take root and spread if it is all going to be a wash.
Thanks but i should have known better. I also did not dry start it right either LOL. Then again I have never tried a carpet before. In the end, I am not even sure I liked the idea. I like my hardscape but changed the idea of how the plants will go anyways. Probably will change that too LOL.
Uhg, really gotta make sure i research this stuff better. At least it wasn't another Petco/Petsmart tube fiasco LOL
