Philodendron is another plant that does extremely well in a Betta Vase. You can clip off a short stem from this vine, plant it in water, and it will grow into a full plant. It needs little sunlight and can live happily in just water. They really improve the environment by purifying the air naturally and rejuvenating the oxygen supply. This setup is also very low maintenance. Really all you have to do is feed the fish every other day and change the water every month or so.

Great plant for decoration, and for the air. Not sure if we can get those here in Israel though. Maybe the climate isn't good for it here ...

Actually from what you have told me about the climate, I would expect it to thrive there. It's a tropical plant so it needs about 75 degrees fahrenheit or above to live comfortably. Aside from that it just needs a lot of water and some sunlight (or even artificial light in good quantities). It's a great plant for beginners because it tells you when it needs more sunlight. Its leaves will start showing yellow or white patterns when it's not getting enough light. Some people try to make this happen on purpose because they look more interesting with these patterns.
