Check out the plant section on this website. What kind of lighting are you using? I'm assuming you aren't using any CO2? Fertilizers? This are the kinds of info needed to determine what plants you can grow.

Short plants that spread across the bottom tend to need high lighting or else they grow tall and whither away. Hemianthus Callitrichoides (HC) is good, as well as dwark baby tears.

Driftwood varies as it depends on the where it comes from and what type. Some woods can leach unwanted things into your tanks as well as have an abundance of tannins which gives that yellowish color to your water. Boiling driftwood is always a plus, in addition to soaking it for several weeks.
