no, i got them from aquariumplants.com. since i planted them, one out of the two is starting to grow. the other is still wishing it could grow. i have 55gal w/260w worth of light and about 25-30ppm of co2 going in. ph is usually 6.8 and a kh of 6. tap is 7.8 so i am right where i want to be. tank has been running since august 31 08 and i have still just been adding ammonia on a daily basis. readings within a 24hr period is 0,0,5. i added flourish root tabs and i dose flourish and excel every monday and thurday. when ever i see alage trying to grow i go in a clean off my plants , glass and remove dead leaves or prune if necessary. what i don't do is change the water all the time since i have no fish. saves a little on the water bill. but in order to get the old debris out, i will start doing it on a weekly as if i had fish. all my plants are growing notically on a daily with the exception of that one bulb. sorry for all the irrelevant info.
