I've looked into that before as well. Though I haven't dug my fingers into a paludarium project, this might ba a good place for you to start. It's very informative with lots of terrestrial plants.

I assume a paludarium is a part land part water terrerium??

Anyway I have a garter snake cage that is half land & half water since they love to swim & eat fish. I have a tropical plant which is a common house plant that started in the ground & has invaded the water area. It roots easily from cuttings in water. It is a varegated variety that we collected from an escaped nursery in south texas but you can find it in almost any nursery. It forms sort of long creepers consisting of strings of oval pointed leaves strung together. I can try & find the name if it would help. I have seen some chichlid tanks with it rooted in the water & the plant growing around the top of the aquarium.

Versus semi-arboreal? Arguably, they are not aquatic.
