Question New tank - plant placement suggestions?

So I got my new 10 gallon tank set up today. I have a couple of live plants in it as well as a couple of silk and plastic. No fish in it yet. Not real sure about the placement of the plants, etc. I would like to get some more of the tall plant that is in the center/back of the tank (it is live). I have that little patch of baby tears (live) that is floating....not sure what to do with it??? The other live plants are the small one attached to the stone in the bottom/front left corner and the one on the ring/rock combo on the right side of the tank. I would love any suggestions!!!!

That's very nice. Most of them are pretty easy, such as the Anubis you have.... They mostly draw nutrients straight from the water. I'm not too sure what the large plant is, but chances are that it'll need fertilizers. You can get plant tabs and stick them by it's roots, or use something like SeaChem flourish excel.

The dwarf tears can be grown floating, or you could attach it to something like the gravel, fake drift wood, etc and eventually it will grow roots and hang on.

Thanks JKfish! I anchored the dwarf tears down with a few pebbles and I will pick up some SeaChem Flourish tomorrow.
