I was wanting to get a few more plants for my 29 gallon tank. Any low to medium light plants would work. I have sand with root tablets. So far the plants I have are Bacopa monnieri, , Aponogeton madagascariensis, Lemnaceae, Anubias, Marimos, Amazon sword, Rosette sword, Java moss, Dwarf chain sword, and a few other types. Any ideas are welcome. Thanks in advance.

Thank you. I've been trying to find Vallisneria for a few weeks now but no fish stores around me sell it. Is there any reputable online website I can find Vallisneria?
I will also be looking in to Hygrophila. Thanks for the suggestions.

I have purchased plants on line from https://www.aquariumplantsfactory.com/ and been very pleased with the quality of plants. They also usually have Vallisneria Asiatica which I purchased for my 30 gallon tank. They are based in Fontana CA. so you should consider shipping distances depending on season.

Bucephalandra are really nice to be tied to rock or wood - sort of similar to Anubias but really unique and the variety of colours is really amazing, nice greens, reds, blues and even purple varieties are easy to find online.

I really like penny wort type plants like Hydrocotyle and Cardamine - can be planted as a stem plant or they can float, you can wrap the vines around wood or decor too and create a nice effect.

If you wanted any low growing plants Marsellia Hirsuta grows quite readily in low tech set ups and is a nice alternative to micro-swords as a foreground plant.

Cryptocoryne are always worth a look too with a big range in shapes and textures, they do well in low light and if you are using root tabs they will do really well.

I really like the cryptocoryne. I have some hydrocotyle wrapped around some of my driftwood too.
