Brackish plants

I'm getting a pair of betta mahachai which live in brackish water. I need to find some easy plants that can survive in slightly salty water. Any suggestions?

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

I have a Mahachai pair that are currently living in fresh tannin water and they're doing fine. But if you still want to create their natural water, then what ChocolateBetta posted, Java Fern is great. I recommend Java Moss too.
