Plant Ideas

I'm getting ready to start my first planted tank. I've looked at tons of pictures and done a lot of reading, but what I want to know now is whether folks with planted tanks generally plant whatever they want in their tanks to make it look good without regard to plant origin, or do people usually try to recreate a habitat? Thanks.

Some beginners (like me) start out with what's available just to get a good handle on how everything works together.

Others, especially more experience aquarists, delve into aquascaping (plants as artistic expression), while others go for thematics, such as blackwater and such. Others go for specific plants to recreate a natural habitat for a particular species of fish or invertebrate.

You'd have to do a poll to see what percentage of TPT people go for what, then do the data crunching to determine what percentage of those are beginner, experienced, or expert plant keepers.
