Eric, go to your LFS and get Cycle! If you are inpatient than I would recommend you to buy it, Petco has it and Patland has it. add it to your tank, rather then killing countless fish to reach your goal.

You don't have to inject CO2 for live plants, it certainly helps them but it's not a requirement. The big one for plants is the lighting. If you haven't done anything special with your aquarium light then you've likely got a "low light" tank. You can keep things like Java Fern, Crypts, or Anubias without upgrading the light significantly. You'll have best results with plant specific bulbs, fertilizers, and some form of carbon addition either a liquid suppliment or CO2 injection. Ultimately when it comes to plants its really up to you as to how into it you want to get.
