Live Plants

Like the look of live plants over silk or plastic plants and want to give it a try in the 5 gallon hex that I will be putting a betta in when I get him/her.
The bulb is a 10w / 5100k CF so obviously I am restricted to low light plants. What is out there that is somewhat easy to care for, for a beginner in live plants.

Java Fern, Java Moss, wendtii crypts, Brazilian pennywort, vals, and anubias plants.

Anubias are slow growers though and not idea to start a tank with. I usually use a fast grower to establish a tank and after it matures trim back a bunch and add in slow growers, otherwise algae is a losing battle on the anubias.

Water Wisteria grows like crazy in any conditions and looks really pretty too.
