All time faverot plant?

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

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

You can plant it in the gravel,or you can attach it to something with string. It will grow like a weed anywhere you put it. It also look really cool when you divide the stems all the way down to the base, then wrap it around your filter intake, and let it grow for a week. It works really well to hide equipment. Just make sure you trim it so the bottem leaves dont get sucked in to the intake pipe.

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

Us Americans don't add a "u" to favorite. And since I'm ethnocentric, my way is, of course, superior. My favorite plant is Limnophila Sessiflora. So beautiful and easy to grow. Followed closely by Pogostemon helferi. If you are lucky enough to own P. helferi, it is actually very easy to grow. John "Rupey" Rupprecht sent me a single plantlet and it now has two little plants coming out of the sides.

In no aquariums for a while.....

I'm going with Hemianthus Callitrichoides...for now. I just love the way it makes a thick carpet on the bottom of my tank.
