Hey, first off, welcome to apc! Let me suggest a little reading first - these 2 for starters:
http://www.aquatic-plants.org/articles/basics/pages/index.html
http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...ums/14684-new-tank-setup-guide-parts-1-a.html

Also check out the 'el natural' forum here for another way to run your tank. Using in the neighborhood of 1.5 - 1.75 wpg (watts per gallon) of lighting should help to maintain it fairly low tech.

As far as plants, there's lots of good stuff in the for sale forum here. Also check out some of the sponsors here which also sell plants. If you get them from the lfs, just be aware that often times many plants are sold which are NOT true aquatics. These will only serve to frustrate you.

Read lots and ask away! :)

Again, welcome aboard!
