What are your top 5 favorite plants?

I was curious what is everyones favorite plants to have. Please try to list your top 5 favorites and why you like them.

I will start it out

Blyxa Japonica-all around awesome midground filler plant...goes well with many setups
HC-best looking forground plant when healthy IMO
Anubias Nana Petite-impossible to kill and great plant to break up hardscape and background plants
Xmas Moss-great looking and hard to kill
Eriocaulon Cinerum-This plant looks like a cactus to me and I like it


runners up include
narrow leaf java fern
HM
Rotala Rotundifolia
Cyperus Helferi
Fissidens
Alot of tonina species
Alot of eriocaulon species
some rare Hygros
some rare Ludwigias

huge list......maybe we should do the top 10?

All sword plants
Sagitaria subulata
Jungle or italian val
Anubis bateri nana
Anacharis (it was my first plant and i love to use it for absorbing nitrates and fighting algae)

Then my next favorites are

Christmas moss
and pretty much any plant that grows from a bulb

Crypts, almost any kind. Love the variety and the ease of maintenance.
Blyxa - same opinions as above.
HC - because it always challenges me.
Tiger Lotus - Again, it's easy and I love the way it fills out.
Alt. Reinikii - because I can't spell it, but also because it's so easy to grow and it's just so beautiful. Doesn't need a lot of light or co2, grows quickly and branches out very nicely.

Once you've gotten your plant fix, come talk fish!

very good question but sometimes you get a new plant and it became the new favorite.

Subotaj, please spend a few minutes this time
and try to answer the question another way;

If you were limited to 5 plants,
TODAY,
which ones would you keep?

I do agree with your statement.
my favorites changed completely
in as little as 6 Months, not just
because of new plants, but old
ones that grew in more maturely.
