Question Plant code names

I am looking for 3-4 new live plants for my tank, after learning that 2 of my plants aren't aquatic. I want some java fern and maybe java moss if it's at Petco. Does Petco carry them? And if they do, what are the Petco names for them? Also, does anyone suggest growing a plant from a bulb?

Petco tube names (official = code name):
Hygrohphelia = Compacta
Java fern = Tropica Fern

I know petco also sells anubias, Crypts, and wisteria under their correct names. Avoid mondo grass, bamboo, and any plants that have stripes on their leaves.

Bulb plants are usually either apongetons or lily bulbs. It wont hurt to try. IF plants do sprout then you get a pretty good deal because you get plants for cheaper than they are in the tanks/tubes.
