There's several plant species that you can keep in ambient room light. I have some tanks with plants that don't have any light on them at all. they don't grow fast, but they stay alive. Java moss and java ferns work great for this.
I use plants in all of my tanks to help keep up water quality.
Just an idea, but if they are against it I don't know what to tell ya lol.
