Top 10 Aquarium Plants For Beginners

New to planted aquariums and looking for the best aquarium plants for beginners? We have listed our top 10 aquarium plants for beginners that do well in a variety of conditions. Generally all plants in this list can tolerate low light, low co2 and do not require much in the way of maintenance. However, some looking after is required, we recommend a minimum of 50% water changes per week and some fertilizer dosing to the water column. Prune plants when necessary and trim off old/tired/dead leaves. Keeping organic waste to a minimum is important in keeping algae away. So keep on top of those water changes!
