idea for a low tech planted fluval edge please?

I am currently fishless cycling my fluval edge tank, ts my first venture into fishkeeping and i am planning on having 5 or 6 endlers and maybe 5 ammano shrimp. I have some black sand and quartz gravel mixture substrate, no CO2.
I have a large (for the size of the tank) peice of bogwood and a few large rocks in there and have upgraded the lights to some bright cool white LEDs which are about 120 lumen and around 4000K i suspect.
I would like some ideas for plants that i could use. I like the idea of moss, maybe chrstmas moss or java to grow along the bogwood.
What other plants would be good? I want it to be easy to sort out, but well planted (without the need of CO2.

Can anyone recommed a god plant supplier in the UK, web order or a shop in the southwest area?

thank you
peter

I enjoy my fluval edge with moss on the rocks. I think it's a fun and favorable direction to go in because the plant is very dynamic and forgiving under a lot of conditions. Best of luck to you.
