Default Advice for planting my 55 gallon Viv

Hi all. I have been lurking about for a while now... But this is my first real post. I am in the OKC area. I have been working on a 55 gallon tank (ty petco sale!). I made a false bottom out of egg crate, have ABG soil from Josh's frogs, have a current satelite + led light with a timer, two computer fans for circulation(attached to the glass tops blowing downward), and glass tops to keep in humidity. I made the background out of styrofoam painted with dryloc latex paint (no ph issues also I highly recommend this to anyone looking to make a rocky type background). I also have several pieces of limestone in the tank. I am a geologist and wanted a more rocky feel to the tank than the coco fiber backgrounds. I opted to leave out any water feature after reading about how hard they are to maintain (although I do have a water dish that matches the rocks nicely). I believe I am ready to plant! Finally!!! Does anyone have any suggestions about what plants I should try? I am a novice plant keeper, so anything too complicated is out. I would love to have some moss/lichen grow on the rocks. I would also like to plant bromeliads on the rocks. Can such things be done? Also any other plants that anyone can recommend to me? There are so many different options out there that I am not even sure where to begin. A vining plant on the rocks would be cool. Also my wife says anything that flowers easily would be awesome.

Thanks in advance for your advice!
