Paludarium background

I'm looking for ideas for a 75g background. I'm wanting something I can plant plants in. looks natural and isn't permanent I case I ever change my mind.

I'm going for a south American theme.
Planning on swords, orchids, bromeliads

A bit more expensive, but pretty easy would be to use virgin cork bark "flats" (they are rarely flat...), tree-fern fiber slabs, or a combination.

The tree fern fiber slabs are great for supporting epiphytes, and will often spontaneously sprout mosses and ferns in a humid environment. The cork bark looks great, but might need slightly more effort to attach plants, and will be a bit more difficult to piece together and attach.
