What kind of plants could I plant in my 72 gallon paludarium?


Looking for advice on what plants I could plant in my paludarium. I planted some ferns and moss which grew really well initially but then all the moss died out of nowhere. The side shot shows the 1.5 inches of dirt then mesh then lava rock that it is composed of. What plants could live well in here? It open top so its not humid. The dirt is always wet due to small drip leaks from the water features. Any help appreciated!

Pretty cool, you'd be better off searching the internet for appropriate plants. I'm guessing very little people on here can help.

I'm not really here... fell in the tank and my phone is just that smart

Pure guess (and only as it's often attached to lava rock here for auction nights) - would anubias work?

Hey! I use Anubias and Cryptocoryne Beckettii, but they will work right for such a big aquarium, but I think that they will grow for a very long time.
