The pictures came out really blurry, but should be good enough.
I got my plants from PeaBody. They were awesome enough to send extra! Lots of extra actually.
I went to Home Depot and got some Miracle Gro Organic Potting Mix. (I read that that should work.)
I have a 40W lamp on each setup. Only one in the pics below...
Dwarf Baby Tears:
I do not have CO2 stuff, so I did some reading and saw that having the DBT exposed to the open atmosphere is a good second option. As long it stays really wet, it should be good. I put down a 1/2" thick layer of mix and planted the DBT. All of the cotton was removed before doing so. I read that direct light helps it grow outward instead of upward. My goal is to carpet the pan it's in.
Dwarf Sag and Narrow Leaf Sag (I think):
I laid down a little more than 1/2" of mix, then covered it in regular gravel. I placed all three DSags and the three NLSags then filled it with water. Is there anything special to look for or do?
I mentioned that this was my first venture into plants, so I guess that's why I got this as another extra. I've heard that JM is so easy to work with that it can be a nuisance. I'll be honest, a quarter of it was/is brown, but the rest is a deep green. I simply dropped it in my 6 gallon tank (1 ~4" pleco and 9 neon tetras), which has a 5000K 15W T8 (long) bulb. It sank on its own. Anything I need to do for this?
