Live plant question?

I just set up a 4 gallon critter keeper. My question is, is it ok to put live plants in a non-filtered tank? It is heated and I do regular water changes. I would love to have live plants in it but wanted to make sure it was ok. :D

How regular are the water changes?
if small water changes are done ever 2 or 3 days you should be ok with any small low light plant, even some duck weed on the surface will be ok and your betta will have fun playing in it :D

ABSOLUTELY A-OK!!!! Matter of fact, it would be GREAT in a non-filtered tank as the plants will help filter somewhat. Not to the extent that you don't have to do regular water changes, but they will help keep the water clean. :)

Thanks for the info everyone! I just love how live plants look, I have hornwort and anacharis in my other aquariums and love it! Abby I do 2 50% water changes and a 100% water change everyweek.
