Spider plants are good (edible, but won't be your torts first choice) Crab grass :)D) Impatients, and just normal grass from the yard. As for baking them under you lights, don't put them directly under (or near) your lights. Shady/cool side is good, by the water and hide. Give the plants A LOT of water, because those lights dry stuff up fast! I recently planted grasses in my table, and they do great.

Edible grasses are fine :) I found that barley is quick to sprout :)
