I'm not 100% sure about root plants, but you can always do Java ferns, java/Christmas moss, and anubias. All are low light easy plants that do not require substrate to grow. You can literally anchor them to a rock or piece of wood and they will grow just fine!

You can also do floating plants too like frogbit (it's one of my favorites) but just be prepared for it to grow super fast. Haha I got some of mine off a member here, most tanks with them are overflowing with them. The roots grow really long and my fish love nibbling on them.
