Lots of stuff will develop a good root system. The trick to getting it to is to not move it around. Prune the top and leave the bottom. Most stem plants will develop numerous growth tips when you do so. Oh, and when you plant stems, plant 4" of stem horizontally to prevent fish uprooting it.
IME, it's easier to name the plants that don't root enough to stay planted. Java Ferns even though they will attach to furniture, hornwort, and riccia come to mind. Someone else will probably think of a few more.
Keep in mind that low trace and or PO4
(IIRC) make brittle stems.
I've seen a 12" sword completely cover the bottom of a 29 gallon with roots. Looked up from the bottom of a metal frame stand.
