- anubias barteri nana and petit
- hygrophilas polysperma and corimbosa
- montecarlo
- nymphaea lotus
- vallisneria gigantea

+1 on Lydia's suggestions. I've used most of those over the years and they aren't very demanding. My planted setups always looked rubbish but the plants aren't to blame for that :P
