I think my favorite plant is Pogostemon stellatus. It was one of the first plants I ever grew successfully and probably the only one I haven't gotten rid of over the years. It grew best in my 75g with 126watts of NO flourescent lighting and CO2 even though most said it wouldn't grow in those light levels.
It looks good most of the time but I still have problems with it. Since upping the light to 206 watts over a year ago, the plant has been hit or miss. It can be one of the most beautiful plants when in good shape. I'll probably put this in a lower light tank (2wpg) in the future so I can enjoy it all of the time, not just when it isn't stunted
