I have dwarf sag in mine, however it can be not so dwarf. Wisteria will sometimes grow along the substrate in low tech setups. There is a thread in this section that covers this better, cant remember exactly what it was though. .

I've had great luck with Lilaeopsis brasiliensis (Micro sword) in my non CO2
tank. Very slow going, but make a nice capret.

As for taller plants take a look at this thread
