Looking for Plant suggestions

Klondikebar

Want to get a decent amount of plants so I can do less water changes. All iv managed to get to really grow is anubias, buce, crypts, and a tiger lotus.i do fertilize and root tabs. It's gravel. I'm looking for something tall for the back and maybe something other than anubias and Bruce I can attach to the wood. I have some Christmas moss in there now alive but not exactly growing. Open to anything at this point hoping for stuff that will help clean the water and kind of hard to kill like anubias. Or recommendations on how to not kill other plants.

  • Water wisteria and vallisneria are a couple options for the back.
  • Pearl weed might work for something to tie to rocks.

I have val in there that just doesn't want to grow. I'll look into those other 2 though thanks.

Other easy care plants to tie to rocks and wood that you could try are bolbitis and java fern.

I think the plants you and others listed are probably some of your best options. I would add Rotala rotundifolia, Water Sprite, and Java Moss to the list.

If you're trying to create a minimal water change style planted tank, check out this article: How to Setup a Low-tech Planted Tank: Planted Aquarium Guide | Bits and pieces of my digital life. It's not my typical style of tank, but the approach is intriguing.
I would love to get the changes down as low as possible but I havnt been able to get the tank planted that heavily. From that article sounds like most of the tank needs to be covered in plants.

moneywort or bascopa carolina are good background plants. can cut stems and replant for thicker growth.
