Default Re: DIY carbon source, not CO2

I added ascorbic acid, vitamin C, C6H8O6, into the mix. The slow growing Hygrophila Pinatafida seem to perk up a bit. It seems like a mix of C6 makes it easier for the plants so they don't need to spend so much energy of producing various Carbon compounds. CO2 looks like a much better option though
