java ferns grow in all my setups (kH4, 150 ppm)
- with or without CO2,
- with high light...grows like hell, with little light still grows decently
- with or without ferts
- low temp, up to 32C

Another easy plant (actually my favourite) is Ludwigia repens...looks great, easy to grow, hardy, easily available, no ferts or CO2 required, low light is sufficient, can take 30C, doesn't need any substrate...and again, it looks awesome

Ferns are hard to grow? My windelov, needle ferns and java ferns are all growing like weeds. I propogate them once a month. My tanks are 2.5wpg and 3wpg with diy co2.

Few plants which I find easy to grow:
Rotala sp.
Hydrocotyle sp.
Hygrophyila polysperma
Crypto sp.
