Plant Suggestions

Hi everyone. I just broke down my 15 gallon and have decided to try some plants emersed. I am looking for some recommendations to some nice plants that I can put in here. Also I am wondering how much of the tank I should keep filled with water.

I am thinking of doing some anubias, cryptocoryne, and maybe try some swords or hairgrass.

Last, do I need a top for the tank and do I need to mist at all? I might just cover the top with wrap like I'm doing on my 5.5 gallon with the dry start method.

Thanks.

Thanks! I am not sure why I've had no replies. I do not see any other recent topics on popular riparium plants.

sounds like good plant choices, how are you separating soil from water? are you separating it? will you have a shelf? What kind of substrate are you going to use?

I gave up on the idea. I will try again in the future. I was using my recycled aquasoil II. My land part was a large piece of wood and a stack of ryuoh stones.
