filter baffel and plants

im wondering if putting a sponge or water bottle filter baffel on my filter will it affect the growth of plants?i was thinking maybe the less flow from the filter would put less oxygen in the water so maybe my plants wont grow?

Hasn't effected mine at all. I use the plastics water bottle on my 2 10g tanks & the plants grow just fine.

With live plants-it is better to have less water agitation at the surface so you don't drive off the natural CO2 that the plants like/need for growth.

OFL hit the nail on the head. The more you can reduce flow, the happier your plants will be. So go forth and reduce that flow!

And plants don't need oxygen like fish do, they actually create it! Hence why people can have tanks without filters even with fish that need to breathe oxygen from the water.
