Lucky Bamboo

Hey, Hi. What kind of plants are safe for my Betta? I read they need hiding places so I would rather put real plants in his home than something made of plastic. The home he is in now has Lucky Bamboo. There is about 1/4 of an inch in the water.

Bamboo is not an aquatic plant, but it should do OK as long as most of the leaves are out of the water. But that makes it not such a good hiding spot

Marimo Mossballs, Banana plants, and Sword plants tend to be some of the easiest live plants to care for.

I'll second that... I've used java moss for years... grows worse than a weed! It's perfect for betta hiding.
