Anyone got any plants they're not using/willing to sell/give?

So Dahvie is now staying permanently in his 2.5 gallon tank so I'm working on setting it up to being betta safe. Right now I have no plants in there whatsoever, not fake nor live so it's looking pretty bare.

He does have a floating betta log but that's obviously not enough.

So before I go buying decorations like crazy I was wondering if anyone has any they're willing to sell or give and I'll pay for shipping. :D

I will accept fake and if they're easy to care for live. I am still new to the betta world and haven't actually taken care of live plants before, but I'm willing to give anything a try at this point!

If you are interested and will pay shipping, I can give you a big handful of floating plants, will include, Asian bogmoss, salvia(of some kind), and dwarf water lettuce which grows some really long light green roots. Bettas love them...my males lounge between them and taller plants...which you might get to!
The duckweed will be the tiny little round plants that stick to your hand and walls of tank...sorry, but they like my tanks, too. :)
The floaters do well with any light, but better with a plant bulb or if you can afford(walmart sells 2pk for 10$ here) a 6500k mini fluorescent bulb...think its 10watts...I have one in my 2.5 mini bow, and plants are very happy!
No diseases or infections in my tanks for last 4-6mos so should be ok, but can dip in potassium permangate solution or mild bleach or just quarantine with water changes.
Anyway, let me know! (if I can send a plant, it will be low maintenance like java fern or water sprite).

I'll have to think about it now that I decided to put him back in the 10 gallon and actually divided it. (I felt more comfortable doing this because the 10 gallon is the only tank that actually has a filter and a heater).
