Default Carpeting plants, help?

The main question is have any one had luck keeping a carpet of dwarf baby tears with no co2. Or monty carlo but they've got bigger leaves then I'd like.

My problem is, the size of the tanks I want to work with are sub 1gallon. I dont plan on setting up filters on them, and co2 just doesnt make sense on something that small.

Is there a work around that can be done for a setup like this, or any suggestions would be appreciated.

Try marimo moss ball/ algae... Break it up and flatten it out to go on rocks and substrate.

Instead of CO2 try looking at a liquid alternative such as Excel. The plants will still get the carbon they need and the carpeting plants will grow if there's enough light. Adding Excel is something that should be done everyday or at least every other day. It breaks down quickly and can be dangerous if you overdose the tank. Too much and the fish might have trouble breathing.
