many aquarium plants come in pots but you should take them out and carefully trim off the dead roots and plant in gravel.
most gravel is ok for planting but there really should be some consideration taken when workig with some of the harder to keep plants.
as for pots?? i wouldnt think pots would be good unless you planned on keeping the plant for less than a year or so, pull it out when it starts dying and replanting another.
