Getting my first frogs soon

I have a 65 gallon terrarium I set up about 5 mobths ago. It is maturing nicely so far. I installed a mist king misting system which comes on for 1 minutes, 3 times a day. The terrarium has a false bottom. The substrate is peat with sheet moss on top. The background and accent wood pieces are cork and cypress wood. Below is a list of plants I currently have in the terrarium. I wil also try to post a picture. Please give me any feedback you may have about the plants. Will the ric rac be ok? I plan to culture fluit flies to feed my froggies. Thanks in advance for any help.

West Indian tufted airplant
Vanilla planifolia 'Tetraploid' – giant vanilla
Vanilla planifolia - variegated vanilla
Vanilla phaeantha – regular vanilla
Hydnophytum formacarium – ant plant
Dischidia pectinoides - Ant plant vine
Shingle vines
Earth stars
African violet
Ghost orchid
Butterfly orchid
Ric Rac cactus – ok with frogs?
Rhipsalis – thin branching
Various ferns
Scindapsus pictus
Other small orchid
Lycopodium hamiltonii
Sheet moss
Spanish Moss
Variegated creeping ficus
Small nepenthes
Various tillandsia
Small bromeliads

Wow, that's an awesome terrarium. What type of frogs are you planning on getting? I'm assuming either something big, or a hole bunch of medium or small ones!

the ric rac, I'm not sure of, but be careful of the spanish moss. Some people have had frogs get tangled in it.
What type of lighting are you using?
That is a good looking tank, and quite a plant list!
