Default My plant ideas

Okay so Im planning on ordering plants tomorrow and Ive made a list of things I would like to have but would like to make sure there all dart safe and would do okay in my viv. I did look on a lot of threads about diiferent plants but I just want to make sure. Also my lighting is a exo terra with 2 6500K CFL bulbs. I do know some of these are low light so they would be good, as far as the broms I figured I would mount them under the lights or close to.
-Korean Rock Fern,White rabbits foot fern,Button Fern,and spikemoss

Other Plants
-Ficus pumila, Jewel orchid(Can be planted in substrate?),Pilea 'Creeping Charlie'(background)

Broms (On background/cork)
-All that I list are neo.
Babe,Dungsiana,Lilliputiana x Pauciflora, Popoki, Joao Marcio x Night Spot, and Wee Willy

These are some of my favorites I found but just want to be 100% sure they all would be okay with darts. If there is a plant thats not good for darts or just doesnt do well in vivs. please let me know. And correct me on where they should be planted. Thanks!

All of the ferns do well. Just make sure you dont let the spikemoss dry out, can quickly dessicate if you let it dry out much at all.

Ficus pumila and Creeping Charlie are both FAST growers in a viv, so be prepared to do some trimming. They will do very well for you though. Jewel orchids do get planted in substrate, and appreciate being kept moist, but well drained and also like to be shaded, most do not do well with full exposure to tank lights. Also, they are magnets for slugs and snails, so make sure your tank is free of those, or keep a close eye on them. You would be amazed by the damage a slug can do in even just one day.

Broms should all do well, I recognize most of the names. Just make sure not to damage the stolons if you are mounting, or bury them too deeply in substrate if you are planting them in the substrate.
