Great for tropical terrariums. Assorted colours.
This plant grows around 30cm in height with heart shaped glossy leaves. The bright ‘flowers’ are actually something called ‘spathes’ which are not actually flowers, but colourful leaves which attract insects in the wild. The colours are commonly red, pink, yellow and white and they add an attractive splash of colour to any tropical terrarium.
Native to tropical areas in Central America, South America and the Caribbean.
These plants prefer a tropical rainforest environment, they are a climbing plant which makes them ideal for taller enclosures. In the wild they are epiphytic, meaning they often grow on other plants instead of soil. They require the substrate to be moist not wet, adding in a few handfuls of sand can aid drainage. They thrive under full spectrum plant growth LED lighting as this aids colour and growth.
Please note: Live plants will naturally vary in size and all sizes are approximate. Photos displaying multiple different colours are an example of the variety we stock, we will send random colours based upon availability.
