new to plants

so i'm thinking of adding plants to my betta tank its s 15 gallon tank, there are cories and a clown pleco, what is the best beginner plant. i have 2 in of gravel the tank has been running for a about a yr. the ph is generally high i think that is because our water is really hard. any suggestions would be great

well, i think something like an amazon sword would do fine in ur tank if u want a fairly easy undemanding plant. I ahve mine in 8.0 ph and its doing well. Just make sure u get ferts for it or itll eventually stop growing. Itll survive under high or low light. Otherwise, get a javefern. Those are difficult to kill.
