May or may not. It depends upon the light and nutrient balance. Most aquarium plants, with the exception of very few such as some of the substrate carpet types, will grow fine if they have sufficient light intensity and available nutrients, without additional CO2. They may be slow in growth, but they will grow. The natural CO2 in most tanks is more than some realize. Once the balance between light and nutrients is reached, increasing any one component will not make any difference to the plants if something else is lacking--but algae can take advantage.
