please recommend rooted plants

good day...

what are your favorite plants that are rooted or rootless, I keep buying "bunch" plants from lfs'es only to be disappointed when they start thriving in my tank and putting roots out all over the place.

my tank has medium-high light (~4 wpg), and cr**py diy co2, dosing flourish about once a week, no carbon in the filters

also, where's a good place to buy these at ... a lot of the bundles I see online seem to contain a lot of "stem / bunch" plants

Well, thats what bunch (or stem) plants do. I ad mit it's a pain, but you have to do plant maintenance with these guys every 2-3 weeks. Cut off the tops, pull out the bottoms, and replant the tops. Only way I know of to keep the best looking part of the plants in the tank.

http://www.aquabotanic.com/ Good site, decent prices, pictures of most plants, and you don't pay till after you get the plants!

My favorites, so hard to say!

Stem plants: Hgroyphilia Sunset, Bacopa Carolinia, (both red/pink), Wisteria, Anacharis.

Cryptocornes: Balansae, Spiralis, Wenditii brown.

Blade like plants: Dwarf Valisineria, Saggitaria Americana.

Foreground plants: Micro tenellus, Riccia Fluitans.

Big mama plants: Banana Plant, Various Amazon Swords, Various Aponogetons (especially Madagascar Lace)

Also, Dwarf Lilly plants and Java ferns!

Now, I don't keep all of these, but boy I wish I could! I've also failed with a few of these, (I'm on my second try with Mad Lace, and the dwarf lillies).

There are so many choices, Just try some!
