Heat resistant plants?

So I have a big Pothos plant in the top corner of my cage and I have some of its vines around the edges of my basking place, along with a tiny Pothos plant in front of Amaro's food bowl so he feels safer while eating and basking. Everything in the cage is doing great except for those two places, as they are near his basking spot, and don't like the heat. They aren't dead but they are droopy and the leaves are folded up. The leaves are their normal color and don't feel dry. His basking spot is only 82-85, humidity is 30-40 during the day, and he doesn't eat them (he only eats his umbrella plant lol). I would rather just get a small heat resilient plant to put in those places rather battle with my Pothos plant.

How much have you been watering your pothos? Since they're closer to the heat source, they're likely drying up faster. I've taken to directly watering my canopy plants every couple days, and they've been much happier since!
