Palm (or palmetto) fronds are really cool. They are big enough to provide shelter, they last a long time, and, what looks more tropical than palms? If you have access to guava leaves, they form nice "curls" as they dry, leaving little tubes. They do break down on the faster side, though. I've tried some other tropical leaves too. Ceiba and Adansonia break down pretty quickly, Brachychiton and Pseudobomax a little more slowly. Figs do leave cool skeletons. Personally, I like to use as many kind as I can get ahold of. The greater the variety, the better IMHO.

EDIT: also, a handful of dried twigs goes a long way toward keeping your LL fluffy :)
