Ive been looking for this plant for weeks, and i finally found some creeping jenny at a LFS. Now i just have to hope it grows okay. The plants look really healthy, and have some root structure. any tips on growing her or is she a pretty easy plant?

Keep it cool. It doesn't do well at higher temps.

In Holland, they sell it as a starter plant, combined with watersprite. In my tank it was doing great! Just cut off the toppings, plant them, and create a nice bush. The plant will automatically create site shoots.
