I always use Aquarium Plants Pond Plants From Sweet Aquatics and also referred many member their way so far

A alternative to what you like for a floating plant may also be Pennywort with leaf size is slightly smaller then a quarter coin I attached 2 pictures of it for you below, you can plant it and grow over the surface or just toss it in the water w/out planting and let it float, either case it will thrive.
(Just don't order it online, if you want some let me know, send me a PM )

I have always had great luck with local stores and never had a need to consider online. Some here will send plants by mail. They have websites, so you can contact them directly if interested. Plant availability is now and then in season, etc.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Sorry for the delay in reply....This plant is really a mirror image of how your tank is doing as far as water quality & lights (poor quality-won't grow, good quality-good growth).
In most common tanks this plant does grow but not too massive, in my old tanks with water on the little harder side this plant I'd say was moderate.
Here at the new house with zero hardness and the lights at half strength yes its growing fairly quick on me (I just offer to send it to other members therefore).

Quick question, how will floating plants effect substrate plants like amazon sword? will it slow down their growth or even kill it by starving it of light?
