Plant Question(s)...

So I have regular incandescent lighting in my 10 gallon tank and gravel on the bottom. I do have a moss ball and some duckweed that is just starting to grow. Are there any other plants I can have in my tank possibly floating? I dont have any substrate or soil or anything like that. I was just wondering if there are any other hardy plants I can have without having to change the whole tank over. Thanks!

Java fern and java moss can be grown attached to driftwood or other decorations, or even floating. Frogbit, dwarf water lettauce, and water wisteria are also good floating plants and I believe pretty easy to care for.

Amazon swords and achrchnis (sp?) are also good low light plants and I think would survive in regular gravel.

Make sure you have proper lighting for plants and dosing with a fert like Flourish or even adding Excel (but take your moss ball out when you do excel) will really help your plants.

Dosing is like a drop I put into the water then? Thanks Sundancex!
