Buying some live plants - which to get?

Hey guys!

So I'm finally setting up my 10 gallon tank tomorrow. I have already bought one live plant (Anacharis) but want to get a few more to help oxygenate the tank and help with the nitrogen cycle. Thing is, I'm not great with plants and don't want to get something only for it to die! So I'm thinking Java Moss, Java Fern and Water Wisteria. If I was to get one of each of these, would any extra light other than a desk lamp be necessary? Also, should I add them to the tank at the start of the cycling process, in the middle somewhere, or at the end?

Thanks!

No extra light needed these are low light plants, wouldn't reccomend anarchis because mine died on me but it works on most people, beginning of the cycle.

After killing off even just plain medium light plants when I have close to high lighting CFL's, I looked into the easiest possible plants. Anubias nana is one of the prettiest plants there are IMO. They look so pretty that it appears fake. They are suuuuuper easy to take care of, too. I know for a fact the java fern/moss is really hardy, and I think that the wisteria is hardy too. Good luck with your tank!
