An anubias on a rock is nice and it will give your betta somewhere to sit too :)

I really like anachris, grows very easily and looks cool. I also have a banana plant that has grown really well, with broad lilys.

java fern, and the windelov version, any anubias and there are abouth ten that stay small enough for the tank, vallenisaria has a dwarf variety and all of these grow with out much fuss. if I can not kill it you cant either.

All of the above mentioned are great! I also have Gold Creeping Jenny, Cryptocoryne parva, purple Cabomba, and Hygrophila Corymbosa. All very easy to take care of

Banana lily plants are aquatic, but you need soft water for them to live happily and not melt away.
