What plants for my new betta tank?

Hello everyone! So it turns out i'm getting a new betta tank in a couple weeks and wanted to try a new experiment with it. I'm putting him in a five gallon tank btw. I have never used live plants in any of my tanks before, and would like to try. I will be probably be buying off of the website http://h2oplants.com If anyone uses beginner plants for their betta please share!

Fast growing - Water sprite, anacharis

Slower growing - anubias

A cover plant - water lettuce

It depends on the tank light. My best bed is going for beginner low light plants because a lot of tank come with "low" light.

I second the "low light beginner section". I just added water sprite last week, and I like it, but mostly java fern and anubias glued to a coconut shell fill my tank.
