Unkillable plants

Does anyone know any plants besides moss balls that are unkillable?
As in you would have to try to kill them?
My little sisters tank needs a new plant, however idk what to get her. She needs a low light unkillable.

My amazon sword, and another type of sword which someone told me is called a rosette sword, in my 10 gallon have survived well with low/medium light and no fertilization or anything. I've had them both for over 8 months. They grow REALLY slowly in my tank, but they're still alive.

Anubias. Slow growth, but really tolerant of low light and a lot of jostling around.

Would they do okay in a cycled 3 gallon that doesn't get enough water changes? Also she has a Sulawesi snail so it has to survive possibly getting munched on.
I gave her a super hardy cactus a few years back and she managed to kill it.
I kinda feel bad for her betta, but it seems happy and is ungodly hardy.
I'm looking for something to help with the bioload.

(maybe I'm just crazy, my father thinks I have too many plants in my tank lol)

anacharis (under 80*), java moss, frogbit, possibly duckweed. You have to clear out surface area for breathing with frogbit and especially duckweed.

Hahaaha, I've killed frogbit, duckweed and water lettuce. I am not into plants, but I have a ton of java moss. Aside from that, I have wisteria and anubias that I haven't managed to kill. If I can keep them alive, anyone can.

Aubias nana. It was my first live plant, bought it in a tube and it hasn't died. It's been about two months and I've probably had a new leaf or two come up.

Edit: it's in my fluval spec v, along with 9 pieces of anacharis

Alrite. She will most likely prefer Anubias Nana.
Her black thumb is legendary. I got her a cactus that requires no ferts years ago.
I have one that I've propagated from cuttings. It took 6 months of no watering for one to die. She found a way to kill it in 2 days >.>.
Her marimo is still living though!
I'm not really sure about how to deal with java moss.

my fiance managed to kill duckweed, and I managed to kill Anacharis.

I couldn't kill the java moss though.
