What's a good plant?

I'm looking for a plant to hide my heater. Right now there's my only plastic one, but I want a live one. It has to be tall, but I don't want to be wide, like spread out horizontally. I also don't have a lot of light, so something that is lowlight, tall, narrow, and relatively easy to take care of. Thanks!

For the record, java fern should be planted like pictured before, it will rot, should really be tied to dw or a rock, even a SpongeBob Pineapple

If you're talking about my pic, it is, I buried on to take a picture then immediately tied it to a rock, no worries

For heater coverage, I just stuck a big bit of DW near it and tied on a big Anubias nana. I'm going to put moss on it later on as the nana looks rather ridiculous by itself.
