Plant ideas for low tech 20 gallon

We got a new 20 gallon kit. Added Fluval Stratum, some Seiryu stone, and Malaysian driftwood. Am cycling the tank right now. Trying to think of some low tech plant ideas. I don't want to mess with CO2 or swapping out lights at this time. (We are doing that with our 33 Fluval Flex and already past budget).

Anubias, anacharis, and water wisteria are all in my 20 gallon with no co2 or brighter lights and are doing great.

Agreed, and to this I would add crypts and dwarf sag. You'll have a lovely tank.
