I am starting a 55 Gallon aquarium this weekend and was wondering what some good starter plants would be to put in. I need some names of common hardy plants that don't require too much maintenance but still look aesthetically pleasing. Thanks!

Any kind of Vallisneria, Swords, Egeria densa (Anacharis), Hornwort, Java Fern, Mosses, Anubias, the more common Cryptocoryne species (like wendtii, lucens, ) and Ludwigia repens and Hygrophila polysperma are hardy and good for starting off.

Some of the online plant dealers will offer a low-light package, or a hard-to-kill / beginner package. You can also find many starter packs for sale on this site in the sale/trade forum.
