No of course not. You can get everything easily without spending money. --- FC Utrecht

Yes, you do not need to buy anything. You earn money, you can slowly gain gems from trading with others (max 3 a day to give away unless you buy a Dragonsai tree for 100 gems) and you can breed every dragon in the marketplace.
Its optional to buy things. I chose to buy a few gems to accelerate my game once I knew I was going to play it long term - I wanted to get the breeding island and a head start to getting the dragonsai tree. But it is not required.
Yay! Glad I don't have to spend money on a free app! But... how do I upgrade the nursery if not with gems? =S

You have to use gems to upgrade a lot of things, but you get gems from friends, colosseum, racing, and gemstone dragons, so it's possible to do everything without buying gems. I also bought a handful of gems early to accelerate additional egg pedestals, breeding island, etc.
