You are in luck with this.
You want lots of fast growing stems, and they do tend to be the easier ones to grow.

From Rex's site: Rex's Guide to Cycling your Planted Tank
It is suggested that one use two bunches (4-6 stems each) of plants for each five gallons of water. Plants to use include Foxtail (Hornwort), Hygro (any color), Creeping Charlie, Red Ludwigia, Moneywort, Wisteria, Egeria, Shinnersia rivularis, (Mexican Oakleaf) or Water Sprite. Then after a couple of months one can start removing the stem plants and adding the other plants that you want.


Also,
When you start replacing the fast growers, do it slowly a little bit at a time. Make your changes slowly.
