Will cheap Ebay Aquarium Carpet Seeds Really Grow?

I have been thinking to grow carpet seeds so that I can have a beautiful carpet in my fish tank. You can find cheap aquarium carpet seeds on Ebay. I read on the internet that hobbyists have grown aquarium carpet seeds & within 2 weeks the seeds have grown to form a beautiful grass carpet. I want to check whether they grow in aquarium or not.

I have set up a new tank. I have purchased good quality seeds from Ebay & I have followed complete instructions offered by the seed supplier. The seeds have high quality. I have added 2 bags of seeds for this experiment & a single bag has 200 seeds. For moistening soil & seed I have sprayed fresh water. For lightning, I have also purchased aquarium lights.

For this project I have purchased a nano aquarium that has a capacity of storing 20 liters of water. I am using a good quality soil for this experiment. The soil is named Amazonia. Before adding soil to the aquarium, I choose to spray the bottom of fish tank so that after adding the soil, the bottom layer of the soil can absorb moisture.


Step 2: Open Amazonia soil bag:

It is very simple to add soil to the aquarium. Just make a hole in the bag & add soil evenly in the aquarium. The soil looks like round or oval shape with a round & soft corner so it will not hurt the plant roots.


Step 3: Add soil to the aquarium:


Step 3: Decorate soil in aquarium & open package

It is your choice to decorate the soil. I choose to keep them very simple. I have spread soil evenly in fish tank & have raised one corner. The initial setup is finished & now I am going to add seeds to the aquarium. I have purchased six unique kinds of aquarium carpet seeds from Ebay.


Step 4: Add seeds to the aquarium:

I have opened the package & there are six small plastic bags. Each bag has two hundred seeds. They are not labeled so I don’t know which seed I am going to add to my fish tank. I have cut the corner of one plastic bag & I am trying my best to add seeds to tank as evenly as I can. I have added 400 seeds from 2 bags.


Step 5: Add water for moistening & seal the aquarium:

After adding all the seeds, I am adding water to moist the substrate & seeds. I am going to seal the aquarium top with cling wrap so it can hold the moisture. I have covered the top of aquarium by placing a lid. I have bought tank lights which need to be turned on for six to eight hours a day that will help in growing the seeds & plants.


Step 6: After 2 weeks of nurturing seeds:

Now according to instructions it is time to wait for a couple of weeks to see the results. After 2 weeks just 18 plants have grown up out of 400 seeds. In those 2 weeks I have been spraying water twice a day. I have been sealing the tank with wrap. Also I have been leaving it open so that fresh air can enter the tank. The results are not satisfactory even after following the instructions correctly.
