Questions about plants?

Hey guys I wanted to ask you all the best kinds of substrates and ferts. Want to switch over to real plants soon and need advice. Also can I use regular aquarium stones or do I need to buys specific kind. Realize these are probably stupid questions but figured there's no point in not asking. Thanks in advance everyone. :D

Gravel, or sand is fine. You could also get eco-complete or other kinds of fertilized substrates, but its not necessary.
A good fertilizer is Seachem Flourish Comprehensive.
The main thing you need to pay attention to is lighting. You want flourescent or compact flourescent rated for between 5000-8000K. Walmart sells CFL's in the fish section for about $5 that are perfect.
