How many plants do I need in a 2.5Gal tank?

How many plants do I need in a 2.5Gal tank? I might be adding a ghost or cherry shrimp.
Also, what types of plants should I get?

I just added some floating pennywort (about 5 stems), 2 marimo balls & java moss. This is just a holding tank until my 5 gallon cycles. However, I did a water test on it, and the plants are doing a great job of keeping the ammonia at an acceptable level.

Ooh! Get a java fern! My betta has one in his 2.5 and he loves it! They do very well with low light,and my betta builds bubble nests on it everyday :)

If you want shrimp, that tank would have to be HEAVILY planted so they could avoid being eaten in such a small container. You could plant the 5 gallon though, and then you could get shrimp :)
