So if you buy a plant that needs to be rooted, you just bury the roots in the gravel. Just like planting a plant in dirt.
There are special gravels and substrates that are full of nutrients that help with plant growth. These aren't necessary for all plants.
What you should really look for is how high of a light the plants want.

I have noticed every betta I have kept loves plants.As for which ones,it depends on what you want to put into it.High light high maintenance or low light low maintenance.CO2 and ferts or no.I personally will never own another unplanted tank because,if you can keep the plants well then usually the fish are well as well!
