    Default Types of plants to put in a 10 gallon tank for dart frogs?

    so i'm about to finish making my first 10 gallon for my D. Lecucomelas enclosure within the following week. the thing that is stopping me is what kind of plants should i put in? i put great stuff for the background and have two 3 inch net cups to put two bromeliads in each one but idk what type of bromeliad would work best ? also any other recommended plants to put in the enclosure? i plan on buying all these plants from my local flower/plant stores.

    The broms have to be mounted.
    My leucs do not go in the brom I have in their tank ?
    They will appreciate one or two coco huts with a petri dish underneath.
    The surface of the dish stays damp or you can spry clean water in every few days.

    Here are a few a few ideas off of BJs site for you.
    Get an idea of what to look for
    Often, plants ideal for this very damp, enclosed environment are not always available at 'run of the mill' plant places

    Here you go:

    Start here:
    Terrarium Plants

    Some easy to grow favorites

    Monstera siltepecana
    This will grow very fast-- on the substrate it will put down feet. It actually can get out of control. Will eventually need thinning.

    Rhaphidophora pachyphylla
    Nice little leaf---slow growing

    Ficus pumila var. minima
    Many - will recommend this plant. I have removed most of this from my tanks as it sends too many roots in the substrate.

    Live Tropical Moss
    IMO BEST ! Hands down. Can't kill it ! One bag goes a long way !

    Calathea vitatta
    Great little plant
    Taller--plant for the back- very fragrant blossom. Easy to divide (more is good )

    My favorite species of ficus. It doesn't take over like the other. Once it gets going it's lovely.
    Ficus sp. 'Lance Leaf'

    Caladium humboldtii 'Mini White'
