I have sechams root tabs and flourish comprehensive. Would those be enough? Have read it needs iron is there enough in those for it I wonder? Though Iam not sure I have the lights it requires anyways.

Imo, it should do very well in a shallow soil tank (10g maybe?) as a background plant.

Otherwise, just give it root tabs.

Its in a 29 gallon tank that is about 3/4 or less of water as I have some emersed plants growing above the water line and still have the glass top on for the lights to sit on.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
