Howdy!
I was wondering what all plants can be put in a P. Imp tank? I want something small that will stay small to liven up the tank a bit. Thanks all!

The problem with plants is getting one that will do well in your conditions. I don't have a green thumb and I don't keep me Emps on direct sunlight. I have had a Pothos in my enclosure for about 3 months and it's still doing fine. I hear people do good with Spider Plants and others with bromeliads.

I had a load of ferns in with mine when I had a 17 scorp setup. Biggest problem was the bloody crickets and cockroaches eating them overnight.
It's also a pain when you spend hours sculpting the tank just so it looks good, get in from work next morning and it's flat with the plants ripped up.

I have great luck with Dracaena Janet Craig Compacta. It is small, and stays pretty small overall. Does super well in low light, and doesnt need to be fertilized. It also does really well with dealing with being damaged and not dying but just bouncing back. Oh yeah, and they are super cheap around here... Always nice if it does die that you dont need to spend more then $2 or $3 to replace it. (although I have kept this type of plant for years not in a tank and I have a black thumb but i have never killed one of these.)

I've had success with ficus pumila. Seems not to mind too much about the low light and loves/needs high moisture. Never had issued with crix eating it either, unlike with the 2 succulents they demolished in my M.Martensii tank.
