I have an established tank that Im rescaping. Needing plant ideas, some that are low tech, easy to care for/hard to kill.

Actually that was my last scape minus the moss. Would like to get some Jungle Val or something similar for the background.Java ferns, anubias, amazon sword, dwarf sag are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. the first two you attach to things, sword needs a root tab, dwarf sag also needs root tabs but can carpet. Any moss is good too, though I personally don't like moss because it gets hair algae easily for me and catches food and debris easily.
That would look great! You can also try some stem plants like ludwigia and rotala. Hornwort too. I tend to do a combo of root tabs (or plant specific soil/substrate) and liquid fert. It allows more of a variety on the types of plants you can have but it's all up to you crypts and reineckii are good as well for mid ground/foreground plants.I prefer root tabs.

When it comes to feeding plants some are heavy root feeders (amazons come to mind) and others feed from the water column (ferns, moss and Anubis) while others feed from both.Great ideas!! Thanks so much!! Will have to look into liquid fert as an option.
bury them. they usually start like that then grow leaves up and out. shouldn't have an issue. you could also cut them off and plant them separately.I picked up some dwarf sag today, 3 plants, but one appears to have 3 runners? Im guessing thats what these are. Do I bury the runners or leave them in water column?
