From my understanding, your most common low-tech plants would be Java ferns / moss and Anubias varieties, Cryptocoryne, green temple, Sagittaria, Vallisneria, etc.

A lot of the sword variety plants generally require more to the medium spectrum of lighting.

Now keep in mind, this doesn't mean you "can't" grow them successfully in a low-light / low-tech setup, it just generally means you will get a slower growth rate and will have to ensure proper nutrients, water quality, etc.
