Plants & salty water

I keep all my fish in slightly salted water (1tsp per 2 gal). It keeps the ich and all other problems at bay but kills live plants. It has been suggested to me that if I hike the temp to 30C (86F) the I can stop adding salt and my live plants will be fine. Working on the basis that you don't meddle with what works I'm reluctant to stop adding salt but I really want to have a planted tank as this will help with maintaining my water chemistry. Has anyone got any ideas on what plants are salt hardy if any?
