What are some good plants that are easy to take care of? and where can I get them?
I am not experienced with aquatic plants but I really want to try to plant some in all my tanks. Any advice would be helpful.

**Never mind! I found a really good post about plants.

Java fern & anubias! Those two are easy and hardly require more care than a silk plant lol. A cheap iron supplement like API's LeafZone will help (makes my java fern a nice shade of green) but is not needed. Petco sells java fern in the plastic tubes labeled as compacta fern. Only thing to note is that these plants should NOT be buried in gravel. They should be tied to a rock or driftwood. I just rubberband mine to rocks.

Anacharis and hornwort are easy fast growing plants. They do need a bit more light than Java ferns & anubias though.

I second that...I'd also add Wisteria and Crypts!! Most LFSs that stock plants will have most of those. Just add some root tabs in.
