You could always put them in a container of water in a sunny window, give them a couple weeks, if they're alive that's good.
You don't want them to die in the tank, dying/dead plants add ammonia to the tank.

(goes to remove peacock fern from one of her tanks)

I'd bought some bamboo from a petco as well, but luckily I looked up how to plant it on the way home, and realized that it wasn't fully aquatic, so I took it back the next day and they let me exchange it.

Is there a sticky somewhere with a list of recommended fully aquatic tank plants for bettas? That would be wonderfully helpful.
