Cyanotis kewensis

Teddy Bear Vine

Cyanotis kewensis Cyanotis kewensis
A member of the Commelinaceae family of flowering plants, sharing some relation to the more common Tradescantia & Callisia 'Wandering Jew' plants. Like it's cousins, Cyanotis kewensis grows tolerates a wide variety of both lighting & substrate conditions, but doesn't grow as quickly. The Teddy Bear Vine seems to tolerate short periods of dryness better than many plants we carry, and would be a suitable choice for vivarium dwelling species of a variety of different sizes. Does not require much light, but will tolerate a fair amount if provided.

Pellionia pulchra

Satin Pellionia / Polynesian Ivy

Pellionia pulchra
A fairly difficult plant to propagate outside the vivarium condition, Pellionia pulchra is an understory dweller that does best with moderate to low light conditions, in moist substrate. Higher humidity is a must with this species, as lower humidity will cause drying out & discoloration of the leaves. Does not tolerate cold (sub 65F) conditions well, but thrives in warmer environments. This plant benefits from direct misting, and should be planted in a fairly dim or shaded location for best growth. Grows about 3-4in upwards before trailing downwards, so planting this species higher in an enclosure is recommended.

Red Club Moss

Selaginella erythropus Selaginella erythropus
A fairly slow growing plant that's a little more difficult to grow than other Selaginella we carry. The tops of each leaf are green and the bottoms are red, giving the plant it's "red club moss" common name. Very well suited to vivarium life with high humidity requirements. Must be kept moist in partial shade to thrive long-term. Leaves are prone to burning under bright lights, so consider planting this in a shady corner of your enclosure. Available in rooted portions, 3in pots, and 4in pots.
