Plant reccomendations..and ferts

dont know if this is the right place to ask, but

i was wondering if anyone can reccomend some fast growing stem plants, or broad leaf plants

so far i've got, riccia, java fern, java moss,subulata sags, red ludwigia(on it's way), 2 small amazon swords

i was thinking maybe rotala, giant hygro, cabomba...any other suggestions?

also, if anyone hase a few clipping of any of these, and are looking to sell let me know

and for ferts

are dry ferts better? i've heard of flourish tabs, but around here people dont even know what seachem is, lol i havnt seen a LFS with seaschem products in a while, and they are pretty expensive online, but that looks like my only options

so what ferts do i need?

i should have gotten the ferts befor the plants, but i wasnt aware i would get plants so quickly, lol

A little more information would help: how much light do you have, how big is the tank, do you add co2?

Lots of tanks on this site are high light, high co2, high fert. I would have to research the strength of seachem's fert products - but I am dosing about 1.5 lts of diy (from dry) solution every 2 weeks. That would probably get expensive with over the counter ferts from the lfs.

That said, a lot of people here use (seachem) prime.
