    Default What plants should I use?

    Hi,
    I am setting up my reed frog tank. All I know so far is that the entire botton of the of the tank will be water, but I might make a gravel island if the plants need land. Other than that, I know nothing. I don't know what plants to use, how to set up the plants, and what the plants need. If anyone has an answers to these questions, please help. I heard about air plants and I think I will get some, but i would also like some hanging or climbing plants. I am also looking for a place to buy the plants cheap, so if you know any place in southern ontario, im open.

    Thanks

    Ive seen some amazing reed frog tanks with mantzinita wood, java moss and peace lilles. If the vivarium is going to have a waterfall or misting system, plants such as Anubias and Java moss work as well. These will grow emergent on wood with regular misting.

    Thank you very much for the reply. Sadly I do not have a waterfall or mist system, I only have a spray bottle. I will spray 1-4 times a day. Are there any plants that live well under those conditions?

    Thanks Again
