Not much. You're going to be limited to the very hardiest of low light plants, which will probably survive but not put on much visible growth; Java ferns, mosses, Anubias, POSSIBLY some swords or crypts if they're planted directly under the bulbs...

If you could add a Coralife T5NO fixture from, this would greatly increase your plant options yet still keep you in the low light/no CO2 needed range.
