    I'm trying to compile a list of every plant from South America I can keep in a 55 gal tank (realistically). I'm going for a completely natural setup with Poison Dart Frogs, and a couple fish (suggestions?). Any plants at all will do. I just need a list to start from.

    So far I have:
    Heliamphora spp.
    Bougainvillea spp.

    Thanks,

    That sounds really cool! Be sure to post pictures of it when you're done.

    The only plants I can think of are epiphytic bladderworts.

    utricularia quelchii
    u. asplundii

    and u. jamesoniana all grow on the tepui mountains (same as heliamphora). BTW, I got all this information from a book (The Savage Garden).

    A good websearch will provide you with the species you are looking for, but be aware that CP and live animals do not mix well in a terrarium setting. Asking for a list of Brasillian species is a little on the demanding side, lol! There are too many to list. If you use the CP database:

    http://www.omnisterra.com/bot/cp_home.cgi

    and type "Brasil" (without the quotes) it will provide you with a list of many CP species. Finding CP from Brasil comercially available will be a harder search I am afraid, but good luck nonetheless.
