Water Lettuce

ok today i went to my FS and i asked if they had any floating plants? the gentleman said yes and walked me over to the plant section, he than opened up one of the aquarium lids and i was amazed O_O i saw a bed of plants and he said it was water lettuce, so i asked how much are they? he said $1.99 for a handfull i than said "GET ME SOME NOW" :P (I wasent that assertive) so now i have water lettuce and im not sure how long i have till my aquarium is COVERED in it. Any one have any suggestions?

That Depends on if your Cycling Co2 in the tank or not?
Co2 Will Help it to Grow Along with Good Lighting.
Hope This Helps.

I had those lovely plants before. However, a lid on the tank is a bad idea as they cannot tolerate condensation forming on their leaves. I placed them in my pond and they multiply more rapidly than in the tank. A bit messy but the roots provide perfect sanctuary for fry.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
