Default Low Light, Low Water Plants

Careful with the varigated plants. They need stronger light than the
plain variety to compensate for their patchy chlorophyll. If the area
is as low in light as you imply, the plain green mondo (short or ordinary)
might do better. Perhaps try both. Just a thought.

The black mondo can look nice, in the right setting, but I don't know
their light requirements.
