Default Plants for Paludarium

Hi Friends !

I'm setting up a paludarium and just wanted to request for some guidance on which plants can be suitable for these. I understand that I can use Ferns, Moss and Anubias but I'm looking for some other commonly available plants that grow on the shore line. Some thing grass like growing between the Rocks would be great.

Is there any seed which we use for food that can tolerate a lot of moisture , which I can sow in the gaps between the rocks and aquarium wall etc, so that grass like plants grow out of these gaps ?

I hope my question is not very dumb - sorry if it is.
Kindly help and guide me Friends...
Thanks a lot !
Regards and Care
Kush

I suggest looking for posts by user "hydrophyte". He has a great post regarding 9 easily obtainable plants to use for riparium displays which would also translate over to paludarium.

I've been able to grow riccia emersed in my boyfriend's paludarium. They have a very interesting grass-like shape when they are grown emersed, and would do well to spread out between rocks (in our experience). A couple of other plants that we have in our paludarium set up include the following:

-Hydrocotyle leucophala (both emersed and immersed)
-Myriophyllum mattogrossense (have a few small stems that randomly grew emersed)
-riccia (emersed/immersed) -- needs humid environment
-java moss/ferns
