Most aquatic plants will be fine potted and place in the aquarium like-swords, crypts, vals, sags, stem plants and the list goes on.....

You have anubias, java ferns, java moss that you can tie to objects in the tank like-driftwood, rocks and other decoration in the tank

Potted aquatic plants work well in bare bottom tanks too-you can hide them behind decoration if you want or leave them in the open

It is important to use the right kind of pot so the plant gets good water flow and nutrients-a popular method is to use clay pots with the first layer in the bottom being gravel then potting soil-plant/pot the plant and top with more gravel-the gravel keeps the soil from escaping and give the plant rich medium to grow in while allowing good water flow and weight to keep it submerged.
