List of safe live plants?

Just curious if anyone has ever made a list of safe live plants to put into the tanks of our lovely fish friends.

If anyone does... please let me know!

Marimo moss balls,
Anubias Nana,
Amazon Sword,
Java fern,
and Java Moss.

These are good for beginners too...though I am unsure about the amazon sword as a beginner plant.

Are Lilly and Aponogeton plants safe? I have more experience with plants then with fish at the moment. Just not sure about the two together.

Thank you for the plants listed I'll look into them.

Yes!
I had those, though mine died on me, lol

I have an aponogetin growing now and doing fine.
Make sure the temps are at an okay place for both betta and plant.

Great! I am setting up a large 20 gal tank with just gravel (Not the cheapy crap I have now D:) and going to let the plants grow in the fishless water before adding the fish to it.

That way I dont have to mantain growing plants and worry about the fishies! Do you have pictures of your growing plant? Im curious what it looks like.

Hee, it's VERY tiny.
I'll try to get a picture!

And that's great you are making a planted tank!
They are so pretty.
