Default Generalized micro sinningia advice

I have an 8" exo terra that I'm planting the floor of with micro sinningia hybrids. I've planted them in LFSM, with a sprinkling of topsoil mixed in to add a little nutrition. I know they like decent lighting, and should generally be allowed to just barely dry out between waterings. I also know that they sometimes go dormant, and should be left dry if dormant.

Does anyone know anything about, in particular, "little tiger", "razzamatazz", "white sprite", and "wood nymph"? None of them are anything too unusual in care, right?

Finally, does anyone have any suggestions on a vining/sprawling type plant to accompany them? Something with tiny leaves, where I can plant the roots of it in one area, water just the roots, and keep the whole plant happy even if I'm not watering by a sinningia at the moment. I know there are a couple of mini ficuses, and I might try one of those, but does anyone have a different suggestion?

Ficus pumila is the obvious choice,but it’s boring. Maybe try Ficus p. quercifolia, Pilea depressa, Marcgravia sp.
