Question Plant suggestions??

Because silk plants are so expensive, I figure I might as well try my hand at real plants. I don't really know anything about aquarium plants so help would be much appreciated! I'm interested in those that help cut down ammonia for sure. I have a 1.5 gallon, the the light is on 8 hours a day and it is unfiltered.

Hi :D to grow plants you will need a 5000k-10000k light :D
however, marimo and anubias will do well under practically all conditions

Thanks! Does anubias need to be tied to something? And do they need fertilizer?

anubias griws pretty sliwly, so fertilization really isn needed. you can also try some water wisteria, anacharis and hornwort to see how they will do.

Frets seem to grow plants faster aniubus can be planted in soil but the rhizome needs to not be buried.
