Does anyone have experience with any of these? Advice, comments, questions? I'd like to know more, too.

Struggling a little with the format of the original post...

Plants for a Future is a good resource and has most of that information.

the USDA PLANTS database will also often have helpful information, sometimes including briefs on care for a given species.

The Designer's Manual section on the wet tropics has extensive advice on how to plant in the tropics, sections 10.9-10.11 are about pioneering a forest and establishing an effective polyculture in that environment.

Hope this is helpful!
