I'm going to be starting my first viv in a couple of weeks, which will be housing D. azureus. I've been looking through all the different plants and going with the ones that seem like they would be easy for a newbie, such as myself, to work with. The tank I'm going to use is a 25H, which has the same footprint as a 20 gal, but is a couple inches taller. I'll be using a cork background, some sort of driftwood, along with a gravel and sphagnum moss substrate. These are the plants I have in mind.

Maranta leuconeura (Prayer plant with red veins)
Alocasia 'Elaine'
Neoregelia 'Fireball'
Neoregelia gazpaucho (OR Neoregelia guinea or N. '696')
Neoregelia 'Takemura' x grande
Caterpillar fern (Polypodium formosanum)
Creeping fig (Ficus pumila sp.)
Cryptanthus sp. (3 or so - including 'Black Mystic')

I've already got BillJ's opinion on this. I just thought I'd like to hear some other opinions. After all, you know what they say about opinions and a-holes, everyone's got one. :) Suggestions are also welcome.
