Plants I cant kill....

Im looking for a few plants that are aesthetically pleasing and hard to kill. I recently saw on plantgeeks.com that my Brazilian Swords are non-aquatic plants. Which in hindsight explains why i couldnt get them to grow at all, but i have a dwarf lily and a little plant that i bought when i first got my tank (cant remember the name but apparently it tastes good to the fish) and they are doing fine but every cut plant i put in is immediatly uprooted by my cory and never has a chance to root. In a nutshell i need a tough, nice looking plant with a root ball so it wont get well...uprooted. Is there a match.com for aquarium plants?

cabomba does good in high intensity light. i don't even plant it. i leave the weights on it from the LFS, put it in a low flow area, and just let it spread. java moss is another great option. i've heard it starts slow and then just explodes overnight.

Yea but when hornwort does die, which it will after a period of neglect, it will leave hundreds or thousands of little needles all over your tank that will decompose and cause water problems, also they love to get clogged in the filter! Or at least that's my experience with them.
java fern is great stuff you may not be able to get it to flourish under bad conditions but the "root ball" will stay intact and can regenerate the leaves when you apply good light and some plant supplements! ~ my experience also.same with the moss, but not a root ball, it's cool anyhow. It does explode overnight with good conditions, I have way more than I know what to do with.
