Plants for 2.5 gallon bowl

I'm starting a small walstad style bowl and I'm looking for small-leaved plants, especially those that would be prone to grow partly emersed out the top of the bowl. I'm especially interested in bacopa monnieri or lloydiella lysimachia (creeping jenny). Does anyone relatively close to Cambridge, MA keep these or similar plants?

Conversely, I have a number of plants that are growing in my 29 gallon that I periodically trim. The frogbit and watersprite are the most prolific, but I occasionally trim my hygrophila angustifolia, rotala rotundifolia, and vallisneria (nana?). PM me if anyone wants any, and I'll let you know what I have available. Otherwise the clippings just get frozen/dried and go into the trash. I'm happy to give them away or trade.

This plant has smaller leaves under water. The one on thew right. 10g tank...
But looks like this when Emersed. Penny for size perspective.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight the opposite direction...
