Smile Pico Tank Plant Suggestions

Thinking about setting up and planting up my old old old old "Aquabox Betta" 1.3L.

Not planning to add any tech. or anything to it. It'll just be a no tech tank...like @Akwaskape's Windowsill Nature tank.

Akwaskape's Windowsill Nature tank:

With that being said, does anyone know of any good plants that are small and ideal for a 1.3L?

Buce would be gorgeous in a tank that size. Very low maintenance and slow growing, awesome colors, and they put out flowers submerged. Don't even need substrate if you don't want it because they attach to hardscape.

Was actually thinking of that too but currently don't know much about buces yet. Are they easy to care for? (Do they need CO2? High light required? etc.)

Do you know of any specific species/types of buces that you would recommend?

Smaller crypts, the low ground covers such as chain sword, marsilea minueta, hydrocotyle tripartita, mosses, anubias nana petite, small bushes such as pearlweed/micranthemum umbrosum, if you need some colors, ludwigia sp red, hygrophila polysperma sunset will work

Here's a link to a tiny tank with no equipment. It only has a few plants in it: Taxiphyllum 'Spiky', Anubias 'petite', Christmas moss and weeping moss.

Happens to be the tank in my avatar Love it.

Edit: well guess it does have CO2 in there oddly enough.
