This is a quick start for a new enclosure journal
Later today I'm going to put together a setup at our local reptile specialty shop along with the proprietor. He wants to set it up as a high-humidity display for one or two frogs and it's going into a 18" X 18" X 24" Exo Terra.
I'm sorting through my growout tanks to pick out a few good plants. They have some pretty nice driftwood stumps over there in the store. I hope to have some pictures to post later.
I picked out one plant that I want to use. Mahogany fern (Didymochlaena truncatula
) is one of the best ferns that I have tried for this kind of planting. I have two or three pots of it established here. You can see it in in the top middle of this picture.
It has a real nice growth habit. A lot of the houseplant ferns that I have found tend to be really floppy and with leaves that just fall all over the nice leaf litter. Mahogany fern is more erect.
