I was wondering if using co2 injection to supplement and give the plants a boost. does anyone actually do it and does it help and how long do you do it.

I doubt that anyone would do this to terrestrial plants in a viv because CO2 is more dense than oxygen and would displace the oxygen in the tank - endangering the froggie inhabitants and the microfauna in the viv.
Thank you glad I didn't do it lol. :p

CO2 is a limiting growth factor in submerged plant growth but it isn't a limiting factor for plants grown emersed or terrestrially.... So not only is it a risk for the frogs and other animals as pointed out above, it is unnecessary. There is a good discussion on this in Ecology of the Planted Aquarium (Echinodorus Press).

I didn't do it thanks for the help guys.
