All time faverot plant?

I was wondering what everyone's faverot aquadic plant or aquadic plant species were? I know its hard to just choose one.

I think mine would have to be cardimine lyrata, aka, chineese watter lilly.

75 gallon, fillstar xp2 with inline reactor, 12 Lb pressurised co2, 4.2 WPG-corallife 3x96 watt PC-, fluorite/silica-sand substright.

Definitely Downoi (Pogostemon helferi). I have over 30 of these plants growing in my foreground and they look stunning. The growth is pretty slow and the lime green color is awesome. If I had to grow only one plant in my tank I would be very happy just growing Downoi .


All these plants were made possible by Jon, thanks. (you know who you are if you read this)

Mine changes at least once a month. Last month, Limnophila aromatica. This month is Crypt. balansae (green). Next month... it might be Crinum calemestratum if it starts growing.

Rotala sp. 'Vietnam' is currently my favorite plant. Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'Cuba' comes close, though.
