low-med light plants that grow out of the water

I have a 10 gallon with a shop light over it that I am using to breed Endlers in and was thinking of doing something different with it. Can you guys give me some ideas for plants i can use that will grow out of the water? RIght now i have floating plants in it for fry cover but I would like something that will produce plants above the water line too. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

most of the plants!

Most of the plants we use are acutally bog plants and will be more than happy out of the water if the light is far enough away so it does not burn.

I really like the way parrot's feather looks when it grows out of the water. It has nice silvery leaves. Wisteria takes on its other form (undivided leaves) when it grows out of the tank.
