A lot of the tropical plants you can put in the tanks. I use some plants called pepperomia's, pothos ( devil's ivy ) is a common plant that is very easy to use. You can use several different orchids, even some cps, such as N. Amp, and spiderplant those very well, and any other inch plants.

Moss is nice, like a green patch of about 5 species yanked from the lawn. Its interesting because i have lichen growing on the glass sides... its obscuring my vision of the interior

Another thumbs up on the moss suggestion.

Moss looks great when used in conjunction with a cork/treefern background and a big gnarked log. The creeping moss looks the best(trust me).

If you need other plants, try a Banyan Ficus. They look cool with there aerial roots dangleing down and the leaves are like tiny platforms for the darts to sit on(smaller species).

oh atleast 10 years. i cant tell the species. On one corner, theres a vibrant orange lichen (it has veeeeerrry slowly spread from a lose rock taken from the south-facing side of a large rock outcroping. bigest glass patch.. about the size of my pinky nail.)

The other on the front is a greyish-white lichen, probably the most abundant one in the area... altough i dont want to im thnkng of scraping it off...

I have tried a rotting peice of wood with Soldier licen on it in the terrarium floor, but its not faring very well.

Lichen is actually 2 creatures in a symbyotic relationship [fungi and alge]
Amoung the first lifeforms to cover barren areas, they grow on rocks and rotting wood, and live trees.

i dont use chemical or tap water on them because it causes diebacks.

air ferns aren't plants. they're the dried up and dyed "skeletons" of bryozoans. (if you go to the index in the site I gave you and ctr+F and type "air fern" it'll give you an article)
