new to freshwater plants..
ive owned fish for years but have never gotten around to planting any of my tanks. so i want to start with the smallest, my 2.5 with a betta in it. i bought what was retailed as "betta plants" it says there good with bettas idk. anyways i bought those there like little bulbs and i also bought a 10 pack of flourish tabs so im ready to go. i just sorta need some help to make sure the environment is ok and lighting is ok. ill take pics of the package, and if i ever get to plant the tank, ill take pics of the tank with plants. thanks
poor beta? he doesnt mind the sign let alone show any signs of it being there. but yeah i do need to add some water before i go to my dads this weekend. and his tank is REALLY clean i just have a crap camera. anyways i put them in and we'll see what happens. will having flourish tabs while the plants are in there make them start out better?
Ok. what you have is tabs to put in your gravel for your plants to absorb nutrients with the help of roots. Now... what you have now is just a bulbs. you need to place them in the aquarium ( DO NOT BURY THEM IN THE GRAVEL) and let them stay there until roots and few leave come out. Only after that you can put your tabs in to gravel and plant your newly formed plants.

The water doesn't have to be at the top... There's plenty in there.
And for the sign.. The sign is decorative.. Just because you don't like it is no reason for him to remove it from his tank. It doesn't harm the fish at all.
Leave the bulbs on top of the gravel. If someone buried theirs have him dig them up and set them on top of the gravel.
Wait until you actually have a plant to feed before feeding it. The bulbs won't care about the nutrients just yet.
