Red face New larger tank. How many plants/caves will be sufficient for my betta?

I've had my betta Ernie for quite some time now. I bought him January but I only had enough money to purchase a very small 1/2 gallon tank (which I know is extremely small). Anyway, I finally had enough money to purchase a 3 gallon tank with a heater and LED light (which he loves).

I currently have a large plant in the middle of my tank for him to hide in and lay in but I am not sure if I should add any more because I do not wanna take up too much swimming room.

I am new to the betta community and am wondering how many plants would be good for him.

Also searching for a decent filter for bettas?!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
* I can add a picture if needed!

Bettas love the plants. If it were me, I would put in as many as I could fit - lol

No such thing as too many plants! personally, I'd stuff the whole thing with plants and then put a little cave "hidden" in there somewhere.

+1 on that all day long! Also u got 2 have some driftwood (couple twigs), will naturally make caves with the plants. Slate rock will make some caves also.
