I'll have to print these out and start walking the stores as most places only have the plants labeled as "tropical plant" well I have no way of knowing what it is and if I can use it hehe.
I use ricca, java moss, java fern, and anuibus (spelling?) nana. The ricca will grow as long as it is kept moist but it needs good lighting. The java moss will grow where humidity is high but it is extremely tolerant of cold temps and low light. Java fern do best aquatically but they will grow on waterfalls, moist substrate ect, and need moderatly good lighting. The nana needs to have its roots in water, the top parts of the leaves will do fine sticking out but the base of the plant needs to be submerged, they require a bit of light if you want them to flower.
