Beware of petco/petsmart "specialists." Although not entirely their fault, they are trained to know a very specific set of information about the products they sell and many times, that information is not 100% accurate since the store must make money on turnover. Terrestrial plants like these are sold so when they die, people pull them out and buy new ones. Same goes for reps of the company when you call them. They have information about the plants, but that is all given to them and may not be accurate.
Also, i see your running a Fluval Edge, I have the same tank right now and i had to change my bulbs because the original halogens are not the correct spectrum for plant growth. If you are getting live plants, I would focus more on low-light plants.
