Won't matter what the tick marks are; the scale difference will be too great to see the smaller range on the same axis as the larger...
I see two alternatives
a) semilogx()
b) use separate xaxes (essentially plotyy excepting it would be plotxx) See the documentation for samples on 'using multiple axes'
