Plants & Flora Photo Gallery

A collection of vivarium & terrarium flora

With a borderline infinite amount of colors & textures available to a vivarium builder's palette, plant selection & placement can make or break a vivarium. Some enclosures are modeled after a specific geographic location and only include plants which are native to the area, while others are designed with more of a free-form selection of flora. In either case, the overall goal is for the plants to contribute aesthetically & functionally to the environment being created. The images below are from vivariums we've put together over the years, ranging from simple "growout" enclosures to Museum builds. We've included a caption describing the plant species shown under each photo, to help viewers identify any plants which strike their fancy. (Learn more about species lists & links)

Plant IDs & Store Links

We've added plant identifications to each of the images in this slideshow. Whenever possible, we also link to the corresponding part of our website where that plant is sold. Not all of these plants will be available at any given time, and a few are special order only. If a plant species link brings you to the top of a plant category instead of directly to a specific plant, it's safe to say that specific variety isn't available right now. Even if the plant isn't available, you'll still be brought to the top of the same overall plant category, so it might be worth scrolling down to see if any similar species strike your eye! :-) We hope you find these vivarium plant IDs informational & helpful!
