Deciding how much of each plant to order

Hey everyone. I'm trying to figure out how much of each plant I need to order. I don't want to overbuy, but I also don't want the tank to look way too sparse when I first plant.

Any way to suggest the quantity needed? Take HC for instance, a 3x5 inch mat of it, when split apart and spread across an aquascape to let it fill in, how far would that go?

This is my first time so I'm just not sure how much stuff to order. I'm setting up a 40b, looking to put in HC, Staurogyne Repens, Fissidens, Maybe some flame moss, and some micro sword.

Thanks for any help!
