Re: Help me finish planting my viv
Todd, this is a cool list, but why not simply replace the philo with the mini aroid vine (the famous "Philo NOID")?
As to your terrestrial suggestions, I would say: If the tank is going to run a bit warm, go with the Triolena; a bit cool, go with one of the gesneriads.
Also, what do you think of 1 or 2 green tillandsias near the top (e.g., bulbosa or filifolia)?
OP: Nice tank, btw!

Some good examples of replacements:
Solanum SP Colombia (Manuran's Vine)
Pellionia SP, P. argentea would be best for color contrast.
Notice I suggested small leaved species?
Then I would add a small upright bushy plant.
Amalophyllon SP RM2006
Pearcea SP Ecuador
Selaginella SP Brazil
Small Calathea such as undulata, micans or rufibarba 'Compact Form', or bachemiana
Just some suggestions. I hope this gives you some ideas and inspiration!
