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.

Aponogeton Ulvaceous.
You can see at least a part of it in the rear left corner of my tank - link:

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. :)

Wow. BEAUTIFUL plants.
And Thank you all for being so supportive of this topic! :)

bsmith, that's an awesome plant btw. :)

& ludwigia glandulosa is BEAUTIFUL too. I'd like to get some if I can get a hold of some.

I want to throw myrio mattogrossense in here :P

And some myrio tuberculatum 'red':
