Exclamation Help with dead Aquatic Plants

I have a 10 gallon tank. I put some plants in with no florseesnt (No fertlizer and there is gravel). They died quickly (they turned brown and shriveled). I just bought a florresent light and hood, so should my tank be good to go? I have 6 Neon Tetra's and they didnt eat any of the plants. I have a Chineese Ball that is still good and living. Please help.....Any tips let me know.

Sounds like you're just getting started. I suggest you read the two stickies in this forum: The Basics and New Tank set up guide to give you lots of good info on how to grow plants. It's not as simple as putting a light on the tank and sticking the plant in the gravel.
