The best kinds of plants to grow in ripariums are true marginal aquatics. These make the best representations of the riparian habitat and also adapt the best. Most Peperomia grow in trees, which is like the opposite of growing in the water. Some true marginal aquatics that more or less resemble this plant include Saururus, Echinodorus, Colocasia and Spathiphyllum. If you can give the setup some extra humidity (such as with a closed aquarium top), Anubias will also grow very well like a riparium plant.
