Use of high humidity plants such as pothos, some of the dracaenas, ferns, bromeliads, orchids, and other epiphytic plants will also help to maintain the needed humidity and provide hiding places for the MHDs. Try to choose sturdy plants as the MHDs will climb anything they can.
I was going to do a search for a post I made back when Joe was setting up his terrarium but apparently Kingsnake doesn't like us to search and find posts that recommend other businesses! I searched on all the different plants I know I mentioned and none of them found that old thread! It was about using Epiphytes and where they could be purchased. So, here I am having to type and research all of this again! I think I'll save a link or a copy of this post this time : (
So, If you go to this site, http://www.blackjungle.com/ you will find a wealth of information about terrariums. If you go to their Plants section you will find a lot of information about the plants they offer for terrarium use. Any of the plants they offer are safe even for reptiles that may eat plants occasionally and most are well suited to the MHDs habitat. I am not sure about the Ant plants and the only succulant I would recommend for the humid environment would be Rhipsalis, but otherwise the orchids, ferns, mosses, carnivorous plants, Exotics & Tropicals, air plants and other Epiphytes are well suited to this setup.
If you have any other questions about plants after doing some reading let me know and I'll see if I can help. I worked for an interior landscaping outfit for 5 years and picked up a lot of info during that time.
