What do you plant in?

Curious to hear: What sort of planters and media do you use for your riparium plants?

I have several in foam in an HOB, 5 planters using hydroton expanded clay media, and 2 trellis rafts (no media needed).
I'm thinking of mixing the planters media with some generic gravel from my 10g... but not sure yet. I've also thought about buying shower baskets, but a lot of reviews I read complain that the suction cups are [censor] so I've stuck with riparium planters.

Ive been using toothpaste holders. look exactly the same size as the riparium supply and have a couple little holes in bottom. although it has only been set up a few months so cant say anything for the suction cups long term, but short term they are holding
