    Here's a link for plants broken down by the area they come from that may help.  

    Given the size of the plant and the root system I wouldn't go with more than two amazon swords in a 30 gallon. Give them time to grow and fill in, and then you can have one or two large swords in the tank instead of pruning a bunch of them to keep them small. Since the leaves of the swords will shade other plants below, I would look into low light plants for that area. Are you looking to do any plants from South America, or are you going for a biotope tank?
