Are there plants that do better than others?
Small, simple plants with simple needs are generally better candidates. Plants that need medium to low light conditions are often easier to care for. In a terr it can be difficult to provide the light needed for high light plants w/o raising the temperature of the tank to too high of a level. Be sure to pick plants that have similar requirements.
Personally I would avoid plants that require a dormancy period unless you can subject the entire tank to those dormant conditions.
