I like the "Plantastics" artificial plants, especially the jungle vals.

i personally just stick with easy to grow plants. with the right fertilizers you can pretty much do okay. the biggest factor I've seen is the addition of pottasium for the plants. a lot of the stuff i read up on didnt seem viable (cost being the main factor) but i managed to find some pottasium chloride at one of those vitamin supplements store for like 6$. you dont need much but whenever your plants start to go belly up (or yellowing, melting, etc) just add a pinch or two along with some of your standard ferts (flourish by seachem is what i use) seems to really get the plants going again. even without c02 and special lighting. just my thoughts here GL with your search but i hope u end up going back to live plants they are so much more rewarding in the long run. around here planted tanks are making a HUGE comeback and a lot of local hobbyists sell their trimmings for next to nothing. thats the route id take if possible, also consider joining a local club.
