Talking What's your favorite plant? :)

Ok. I know this probably has been a thread before and it's probably been asked a billion times already. But I just wanted to know from the general public what their favorite aquatic plant is.

Name a few! And pictures are always welcome too.

I'm thinking Sagittaria subulata, or Dwarf Sag. It grows wicked fast and shoots out a great number of runners, which develop quickly. Sorry, I'm to lazy to grab a pic!

i really love all Anubis varieties. It was my first love in my relationship with planted tanks years ago and will always have a special place in my heart. Now though I have begun to appreciate all the different types of crypts, the harder to find/grow types. I have quite a few rarities in the journal in my sig "crs/crypt playground.

But, for an all time single favorite plant I would have to go with Polygonum Sao Paulo. It add a beautiful red coloration to any tank and is about the best behaved stem I have ever kept. It grows pole straight up and down and can be made into a beautiful stand if you make it happy and have a little patience.

Pics from my tank.

And Thank you all for being so supportive of this topic!

bsmith, that's an awesome plant btw.
