Might be better to add some driftwood or rock, or camouflage it some other way.
Most aquatic plants are fairly soft and will keep getting stuck in the intake.
Perhaps arrange a branch of driftwood and plant some Bolbitis, Java Fern or Anacharis on it. These plants are a bit stiffer, and grow higher up in the tank on the wood.
