Tropical terrain for leopard geckos?
I KNOW. Leopard geckos are from very arid and dry places. I know their origins and basic care. But some of the morphs of leopard geckos are so bright and colorful it looks like they are almost from a tropical terrain. So I was wondering if it would be okay to set one up like that, with fake tropical plants an a background and a sort of darkish brown tile. But adding no humidity other than their humid hide, it would still be dry for them. I wouldn't change the temps either.. Just having them in a tropical looking set up. for example a jungle or other brightly coloredleopard gecko.

That's definitely ok. My leopard gecko tank is semi-tropical, with large floor tiles instead of any substrate, like sand - because the geckos can eat it, and a lot isn't good.
As long as temperatures and moisture levels are the same it'll be fine. Just provide lots of hides!
