I would just google planted tanks and get ideas off of other people tanks.
ADA galleries are great for inspiration. Definitely check out Takashi Amano if you haven't already. He is the master.
Also check out pictures of the natural habitat of the species you are keeping and try to get some ideas and inspiration from those images.

Hi

Since you are trying for a biotope tank I could suggest using the plants that come from the amazon region such as Echinodorus Sp. They can handle the higher than normal temps you'll need for the discus to stay healthy for long term. 84-86 works pretty good, and the other fishes (if from that region also) will handle those temps.

Good luck.
