New to planted tanks - 1g

I've been into fishkeeping for quite some time, however the most I've done in the way of plants are duckweed, java moss, java fern, and hornwart. I want to start out small before slowly getting larger (10g, then a 20, etc). Ideas for a 1g? It's one of these:

A betta, some shrimp, or snails would be a few options.

Got one of those at work....female betta and live plants, floramax substrate only 1/2 to 1 inch deep.

Plants are java fern, pelia and some stem (I was told the name just today, but already forgot)

I go a week or two at the most between water changes. Feed once or twice on days that I'm there (usually Mon, Wed, Fri)
No Air pump, no filter, no CO2

I want to try and find a new bulb to fit. At some point I might change it to dirt and sand and add a few more plants, but that probably wont happen till the betta I have dies.
