live plants in a bowl

I recently got my first betta (I took it from my little sister because she wasn't taking care of it) I have it in a 2 gallon bowl without a filter. I was mainly wondering what kinds of live plants would be best for a small bowl with low light. Also, what recommendations do you have to make changing the water with live plants as easy as possible? thanks!

edit: while doing some research I came across something called java fern, is this a good option?

anubias, bamboo, and java moss are your best bets! :)

Java moss is a great option!!! Very soft and gentle for the betta. Good Luck with your fish!

Agreed though I have anubias (commonly sold as "Betta Bulbs") and those things can grow to cover half a ten gallon so be sure to trim the plant when you need to.

Live plants kinda work as a natural filter :)

Crypto's (like cryptocoryn wendtii of beckettii) are also a good choice!
