Humidity disclaimer: This plant will grow well outside of a terrarium or cabinet. However, all tropical plants thrive with higher humidity levels. To achieve this we suggest grouping plants together, or putting them in a bathroom or kitchen which gets regular use.

Please note: some of these plants are propagated by us in our in-house greenhouse. Some variance is expected. Minor cosmetic damage may occur, but noticeable damage will usually be mentioned. Cuttings are not guaranteed to be top-cuttings unless marked as such. Please feel free to contact us with any questions!
