Exclamation Easy adaptable undemanding plants!

I chose these plants for an aquarium that has only mollies, no CO2 injection, moderate lighting, high temperatures of up to
32 degrees celcius, and a water hardness of kH 4 and pH 8.

1. Cryptoryne Wendtii
2. Anubias barteri var. nana
3. Hygrophylia polysperma
4. Egeria densa
5. Cryptocoryne walkeri var. lutea
6. Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia
7. Ludwigia repens
8. Sugittaria pusilla

I want plants that are undemanding in CO2 and lighting but I am ok with an occasional general fertilisation. This tank is
for someone that clearly doesn't know much on how to keep a planted aquarium healthy. Are the plants I chose suitable?

I also thought of placing plants that will grow out of the water so as to obtain CO2 ("Dutch Aquarium"). I dont know of
any such plants but I thought that if I would get plants thta grow outside the water then they would cut out the light
in the aquarium for the fully submerged plants, thus concluding that it would be best to only keep plants that grow out
of the water. What I mean by "grow out of the water" is that they are submerged in the aquarium and then when they grow
tall they will continue growing out of the water towards the light source.

So what do you people suggest? Undemanding plants are ok OR plants that grow outside beyond water level?
