For some highland Sirensis,
Plant Plant community Leaf Botany Rectangle

I am going to let the plants establish a bit before adding leaf litter
Plant list so far is:
Marcgravia “Copper”
Marcgravia Sintenisii
Philodendron “Peach tunnel”
Philodendron “Mini midget”
Sonerila sp.
Neorigelia sp.
Vresia Sp.
Microgramma sp.
Dryadella cristata
Selaginella sp.

I like my tanks diversely planted, so I will likely add double that many plants.

Added more plants including:
Solanum sp. (small vining)
Lepanthopsis sp.
Lepanthes calodictyon
more Marcgravia sp. “Copper”
Marcgravia umbellata
NOID pleurothallid
misc. NOID bryophytes
Microgramma piloselloides
Specklinia(Pleurothallis) dressleri
Specklinia(Pleurothallis) microphylla

*The sphagnum is solely for establishing plants. It will be removed before frogs are added. Please note that sphagnum on top of substrate is an outdated husbandry technique.

This looks amazing! I really like how you did the hardscape

I think I may want to do that tinted drylok over GS too... is there anything to avoid safety wise or is concrete tint and drylok generally accepted as safe for frogs? Just thinking how some silicones have that mold inhibitor stuff

Classic Drylok has worked for me for years. Make sure you get the “Classic” version. Also, be sure to thoroughly wash off the cured drylok-it leaves a residue that kills plants. Once it is cured, washed, and there is no smell, it should be fine for frogs.
