Hi guys. I am a brand new dart frog hobbyist and have been researching for my first vivarium. As I enjoy the challenge and thematic consistency of enclosures representing native habitats, my heart is set on replicating the Amazon Rainforest for my viv. If I am looking at an Exo-Terra 18x18x24, what native South American epiphytes, vines, mosses, and/or any other types of plants would you recommend for the theme I’m going for? Thank you in advance for the help!

I would search the forum with the term “biotope” for build threads doing what you’re talking about. If I remember correctly there are some pretty good examples on dendroboard with complete plant lists.

Many vendors list the native range of the plants they sell. First, choose plants that are appropriate for the frog species you're going to be housing (and the viv size, etc). Then, whittle that list down by native range. The frogs don't care where the plants come from, hence the order of operations.
