    -photos
    -bromelia
    -ficus
    -orchidae

    I guess they are useful for your frog, because they re both tree frogs.

    the list of plants suitable for red eyes is pretty long. the ones that G mentioned above will all work well, as will most species fern, dracaena, peperomias, pileas, fittonias, calatheas, and i could go on. a lot will depend on design, your experience with plants, and if you are like most folk, price. the advice i offer to beginners is, if it is listed as exotic at hom depot or lowes, it will work.

    Default Plants for Red Eyed Tree Frog??

    They love those high broad leafed plants. A great beginner plant is a pothos (Epipremnum aureum).

    Here is the link to the google images when searched.

    http://www.google.com/search?q=potho...20&bih=504

    I have one in each of my red eye tanks and they love them .

    There are several other choices:

    Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema)
    http://www.google.com/search?q=chine...20&bih=504
    ...google images

    Dracena
    http:////www.google.com/search?q=dra...20&bih=444
    ...google images

    Rubber plant (Fiscus elastic)
    http://www.google.com/search?q=rubbe...20&bih=504
    ...google images

    Monstera
    http://www.google.com/search?q=monst...20&bih=504
    ...google images

    Peperomia
    http://www.google.com/search?q=peper...20&bih=505
    ...google images

    Calathea
    http://www.google.com/search?q=calat...20&bih=504
    ...google images

    Black Jungle categorizes their plants according to frog species which is quite helpful. http://blackjungleterrariumsupply.3d...omeSubCat_66_1

    Joshsfrogs has great plants also. http://www.joshsfrogs.com/plants/liv...-plants-1.html

    Ferns are nice so they can walk across the plants instead of the ground substrate when coming down to hunt.

    Here is a post I started awhile back. Never for the chance to add more, but the pictures are helpful.

    I can list more if you'd like .

    j agree with all the plants beatber listed except one. ficus elastica will out grow most vivs rather quickly. there's a reason they are called a rubber tree unless you want to do a LOT of trimming, I would stock with ficus pumila as the primary ficus used in five. it stays small and controllable, unlike most plants in the ficus family.

    don't over look diffenbachia as a nice specimen. it does grow large, but slower than the ficus family.
