    Most aquarium plants will be quite happy in gravel. However, it would be best to know a little more about your setup before making any reccomendations.

    From my understanding adding small amount of salt (NaCl) won't do any harm, but it probably won't do much good either.

    I also believe that it is the sudden change in salt levels that is effective...

    Of course it can, it's just harder :)

    My main point is to check your NO3 level. Your plants likely don't have anything to eat.

    From what I can tell;

    You probably don't have enough nitrate (NO3) in your tank. Also, you may want to consider adding a moderate amount of CO2.

    Cheap? Nothing that can contain pressurized gas is cheap around here. A 2kg tank is about $350. The tank also need to be tested on every fill, so refilling a 2kg at least $50. :(
