I found that the plant grew better when my CO2 ran out, than with. I had a rich substrate, and good light over the tank.

When I had CO2, BBA would grow on the leaves. I manually removed all the BBA, and right around then, my CO2 ran out. I thought the plant was doomed for another bout of BBA, but instead it started popping off plantlets and had no algae growth.

Well.. even if what you say is true, something tells me that low CO2 is still more than no CO2. I failed to mention that this was with pressurized CO2 in a ten gallon tank, which isn't a tank size that's especially hard to get CO2 distributed within. The parva was the only plant that got any sort of algae on it (the BBA).

In any case, it was just an observation *shrug*. If people are having trouble with the plant with CO2 addition, why not try it without?
