My 1st vivarium which will house a D. auratus. Here on Oahu, we have a population of PDF in Manoa Valley. This vivarium will be setup w/ bromeliads to provide shelter, water source and a proper humidity level for these amphibians.

Hard scape: cork tile background/2 cork bark pieces
Bromeliads: Neoregelia 'Fireball x lilliputiana'
Neoregelia 'Red Waif'
Neoregelia 'Wild Tiger'
Cryptanthus 'variegata' (2)

Tillandsia bartramii (3)
Neos & Crypts placed on cork or coco fiber. Neos have orchid bark mounds @ the base
Tillies superglued to cork
ExoTerra terrarium lid covered w/clear cellophane (maintain humidity)
Illumination sked: @ 6am; 5hr on/6hr off/5hr on/8hr off (linked to my planted tanks sked).
While researching mini Neos, made contact with a noted local bromeliad hybridizer who supplied both plants & valuable nursery techniques for these epiphytes. Acquired a sizable collection of mini Neos which will be included in "Living Wall" project on my patio. When the pups are finally placed in their planter pockets, will post pics of this Brom collection.
