Full shade plants

I'm looking for some small to medium full shade plant suggestions for the VOTS. Low water use would be a plus! Thanks!

Succulents. Mine love full shade. Interestingly, you would think succulents would love the sun here, but the sun has killed more of my succulents than anything else. I have no idea what VOTS means though.

Asparagus and foxtail ferns do well for me in full shade, as does vinca (the periwinkle kind).

Many house plants do well her in full shade - spider plant, many succulents, snake plant, etc.

Go to a couple of nurseries and see what's growing in their shade houses. They have lots of things that like shade.
