Exactly what I suspected from the photos. The grass, I was certain of, so previous advice holds. The dark-leaf plant I thought looked like the Peace Lily (you can buy these as houseplants, they do very well in shade) Spathiphyllum wallisii, comes from Columbia, will often be fine submerged (according to Hiscock) but keep an eye on it. The other fern plant I know nothing about except that it is similar to true ferns. It would probably be best with roots in water but leaves in air, as in a terrarium. Keep a very close eye on this one.
True aquatic plants are better bets long-term. Some are in our profiles, Sweet Aquatics is a recommended retailo site online that will have photos.
