Decor for long-finned bettas?

My new tanks all have plants in them, which I am needing to replace as they are all semi-aquatic and can't be submerged to live :( If I can't find the appropriate aquarium plants, should I go with silk decor plants over the plastic ones? I've heard that the long-finned betta types can shred their fins on some of the sharper plastic. Would it be better to try and find the right kind of plants? (the nearest lfs that isn't terrible is in the next state!)

Go with Silk! My old VT used to tear his fins all the time due to having plastic plants. Silk ones also look way better
