Nice! It's like a surprise with each bulb. Sadly I seem to kill all plants...even cactus, so I have given up on planting my tanks :( However, I'm good with animals so it's all good. I am jealous of your nice betta bulbs though :P

Water sprite is a floating plant, right? Could it be put in a non cycled 2.5 gallon tank and how much light should it have?

Yes water sprite can be a floating plant I have it in my 20 gallon and it is nice. You can either let it float ot you can stick it in the gravel. I have a few pieces floating and a few in the gravel. It does not require much light at all. Another you could try is water wisteria I have it in all my betta tanks and it does well in them. They have a combination of desk lamps, and floresant lights and they do well in all the tanks the light are on about 8 hours a day.

Would I have to have a tank light for it or will natural light suffice? I am thinking about something real since live plants help filter the water but I only have critter keepers and no tank lights.

Depends on how much sun light they would get. You could always get a desk lamp and put it over one and try it. I got all mine for $3-4 at goodwill. : )

They would get sunlight but not direct sunlight.
OK, I just read that water sprite requires bright light.

I would suggest get a few and try them it maybe enough for them. Both the Water Wisteria and the Water Sprite are cheap around here you can get a good size bunch of them for about $5.00.

Great! The only concern I have about getting them from Petsmart is that the water might carry diseases from the fish. I think it all flows through the same system.
