Question Plants for a 20g Long?

Hello everyone! This is my first forum post after lurking for a while and I was hoping for some advice on what plants to get for a 20g long. My goal with this tank is to have a single female betta living in a Walstad tank. I've got a sponge filter seeding in another tank, heater, organic potting soil, and pool filtration sand all ready but I am stumped on the plants. Are there any online retailers with good, snail free plant bundles that you guys recommend? The last bunch I ordered off of Ebay had some hitchhikers that I've never been able to get rid of and the stores near me in Mesa, AZ are pretty expensive.

Edit: Forgot to mention that the lighting I have coming in are T5 Dual 6500K Aquarium Light Freshwater Plant Extendable (30"). I'm willing to get different lights if needed though since I only have experience with the Finnex Planted + 24/7 on my 10g.

Welcome to the Forum!

Tissue cultures are snail and disease free. Most usually contain 10 or so individual plants.

That's a good idea Russell, thanks! I had no idea that the tissue cultures had so many plants. Most seemed to be only a few tiny plants for close to double the normal cost.
