Default Re: Native Texas Plants

I've experimented with a few native temperate plants. You'll have the best luck with evergreen groundcovers, evergreen ferns and evergreen shrubs. There are also some Texas-native vines like Aristolochia and others you can try.

If the light is fairly bright and if you have the substrate set up with good drainage, then live oak and other evergreen trees might be worth trying as well. Most trees can be pruned to control size.

The Tillandsia will probably do fine if you position up at the top with good light + air circulation.

Mosses are more tricky. You might be able to grow mosses if you put them on the right kind of substrate and with a Mist King to maintain very even moisture for them. The mosses you have in Texas probably grow more in winter when temps are cooler.
