Default White,silver,red,pink,orange plant suggestions?

I've decided to set my 72 gallon bowfront tank up as a viv for a good size group of Costa Rican green and black auratus. In an attempt to showcase the frogs without upstaging them,I'm trying to be conscious about the colors of the setting they are in,

I plan to keep the browns as light as possible(substrate,background,leaf litter).
Varying shades of green with foliage/vines and I thought maybe white/silver and/or reds/pinks/oranges as accents...

Any suggestions for these accent plants or other ideas altogether for my plan would be appreciated.

Names and pics,if possible, would be incredibly helpful.

I think your best bet would be to contact one of the vendors on here and let them know the size of your tank and they will put a package together for you. I know glass box does it, Neherp does it, probably several others as well. I'm sure you'll get a nice package from any of them.

This is sort of random...
I have heard that auratus look great against a brown background, you could use cool brown plants like Anoectochilus or something. also some really dark leaved plants would look cool to.

Here's what I've got so far...it's mostly various hues of green/to almost yellow, a little bit of creamy white in some variegated plants and a few red accents.

Tillandsia abdita
Various broms(neos)
Didymochlaena trunculata(mahogany fern)
Hemionitis arifolia(heart fern)
Selaginella erythropus(ruby red spike miss)
Thuidium delicatulum(terrarium moss from NEHERP)
Philodendron 'lemon lime'
Ficus pumila 'variegata'
Calathia crocata tasmania
Aralia balfouriana
