You will have no difficulty with plants, floating or rooted in the substrate. You will need regular fertilization, I recommend Seachem's Flourish Comprehensive Supplement for the Planted Aquarium
. Once or twice a week (depends upon the plant's requirements/response) will do it, and with your bright lighting prob twice a week. Floating plants will definitely help in your situation.
