Question new aquarium might put in plants

I am still getting a filter and heater and possibly an air pump. just wondering what plants would work for a 10 gallon tank. i was thinking of corkscrew vallisneria and bamboo. i know i would have to trim them because if i didn't they would get too big but i was wondering about your perspective.

Bamboo the leaves need surface access. You could put peace lilies in the Filter.

The 'bamboo' petstores sell is lucky bamboo, which is actually in the lily family. It's a great housplant, but not good for aquariums. It will die.

Lucky bamboo can live with roots in water or dirt just leaves need surface access. Luck Bamboo is Dracaena Sanderiana. Dracaena is not a lily, succlent shrubs and trees

I know, I have it as a houseplant. Anything that gets to the growth of the plant (the top of the stalk) will kill it. It doesn't matter if the leaves are submerged, at least not permanently.

Other than that, I thought I read somewhere that it was related to lilies. And it is a Draceana

Thank you for correcting me! =)

Thank you for thanking me. Sorry when you said houseplant I imagined dirt my grandmother keeps it in dirt. It cam live submerged a few months. Another interesting fact it only seeds about every 80 years. The leaves have to be emerged the stalk in my experience does not matter leaves are built for surface.
