Hello
Other than pothos, I am looking for a plant which will cover driftwood as it grows (salamander set up)the plant will be planted in soil but would like to spread over driftwood as to give the tank a green look , tank does get good light with led fixture .

I prefer smaller leaf plants which is wht ruling out pothos .

Thank you

Ficus pumila will work well. Grows pretty quick once it gets going and has leaves only up to the size of a quarter. Its also called creeping fig. You should be able to find a nice sized pot of it pretty cheap at Lowes. Beware if not kepted in check it can start to take over. Just trim it when it starts to get out of hand.
