List of starter plants

Could use a list of easy plants for my 55 gal aquarium to start out with. I just retired and am starting up my hobby again. Resealed my 20 year old 55 gallon tank with one more 55 and two 50 gallons to go. They are all 20 year old tanks but looks like I can reseal and use them. If any one has some plants available near Wautoma, Wisconsin at a reasonable price let me know. No hurry can wait for warmer weather if needed

I can tell you a list of plants, but can't supply them. Swords are easy to keep, although they get large. Java fern is very hardy as well. Mosses like java moss thrive in OK environments. Crypts and anubias are also some good starter plants, these are all low-tech BTW
