Easy Plants?

Hi everyone!I have had live plants in my tank for a while now but they never grew well(they were plant bulbs)so I have decided to restart and try to be more successful with live plants.Anyway,I need to know some easy plants that don't need any added CO2(I heard some plants need that)and was hoping you guys could help.I hope to be getting a better light for plants around Christmas.

Low light plants?

various species of anubias work well. They either float or get tied onto to a decoration or something.

crypts but I don't have any experience with them.

Any of these should work:

I have the dwarf lilly - it looked dead when it arrived but within 2 weeks it reached the top of my tank . The fish love it though. it's not so dwarf LOL
