Extremely easy to propagate & grow in a variety of lighting conditions, so long as humidity is kept high. Does well with a fast draining soil that's allowed to dry slightly between watering.

These grow at a manageably quick pace, tolerate a wide range of lighting conditions, and are very easy to grow. Flowers occasionally with upright spikes up to 6in in length. Thrives in high humidity with well-draining soil that's kept moist but not saturated. Leaves grow to 1.5-2.5", and are strong enough to handle most average-size vivarium inhabitants with ease.

Peperomia prostrata

Peperomia prostrata Peperomia prostrata
This is one of the most sought-after Peperomia species in the live vivarium hobby. It's native to tropical South America, and it's delicate trailing pattern makes it an excellent vivarium plant. This is one of the more difficult of the usually easy to grow Peperomia species we offer, and isn't available often. Grows epiphytically or terrestrially, so long as it has area to hang downward. Tolerates low to moderate amounts of light, and does best with moist soil.
