About Our Vines & Trailing Plants

Vining Plants In A Bioactive Terrarium Flowering Vine For Live Vivariums Climbing Plants For Bioactive Terrariums
General Vining & Trailing Plant Info
Our "Vines and Trailing Plants" classification applies to any plant which carries a trailing or scandent growth pattern. Trailing plants grow hanging downward, while scandent varieties will grow in an upward pattern. Some are flexible enough to grow either way! Many of these plants are epiphytic (can grow on other plant materials, rather than in soil), although many do best planted directly in substrate.

Vines & Trailing Plants At NEHERP
We work with a wide selection of vines which have an equally wide range of sizes, growth rates, colors, and more. For example, plants like Marcgravia rectiflora are incredibly slow growing & fairly difficult to care for, while plants like Tradescantia zebrina are super forgiving and grow incredibly quickly. A handful of the plants we grow make great houseplants, but many others are pretty much terrarium-specific. Be sure to check out each plant's description for it's specific recommendations. We're proud to say that some of the mother plants in our collection (which we propagate from) have been in our care since before we opened for business! :-)

How We Grow Our Vines & Trailing Plants
Like all of the other plants we propagate in-house, our Vines & Trailing plants are grown in our tightly controlled indoor environments. Incoming air is filtered, water is dechlorinated & filtered down to 5 microns, and our plants are treated to uncommonly organic soils & nutrients. It should go without saying, but no harsh or systemic chemicals are ever used in our grow rooms. Depending on the species, our vines & trailing plants are typically grown under 35-150+µMol/M²S PAR light at plant level. Although many of our plants are epiphytic, we grow (almost) all of our for-sale plants in our in-house blend of nutrient-light organic potting soil. This helps to help minimize transplant shock after delivery, which can be especially rough in certain delicate species. The long-term mother plants we care for are grown with a more nutrient-dense soil, and are fed using ultra-organic nutrients every 2-6 months depending on the plant's individual requirements. That same regimen would likely be a good starting place for your new plants, if you don't plan on keeping them in a vivarium where no additional fertilization should be required.

Growing Vines & Trailing Plants In A Bioactive Terrarium / Live Vivarium
To keep things simple, we can roughly group the plants on this page into three categories based on growth pattern. Scandent, trailing, and those which tolerate being grown either way. Plants labeled as scandent will grow in an upward growth pattern. These plants will do best when planted low towards a background or decor item, and are allowed to grow upward with time. Trailing plants will grow best if allowed to hang downward, so we typically recommend mounting or planting them up high on a background or decor item for best results. Some species can be grown either way, and the majority will also tolerate if allowed to creep along the substrate level. If you'll be mounting a plant to a background or hardscape decor, we recommend checking out our Plant Mounting Kit. (One kit handles many plants!) Most of the plants listed on this page can be trained to grow & grip onto a surface using a variety of different means, so long as that surface is kept moist and the environment remains consistently humid.

Potted Plants:

Best Terrarium Plants For The Price Bare Rooted & Wrapped With ID
Plant nurseries roughly categorize their plants by pot size, and a plant is made available once it has mostly filled out it's container. Generally speaking, a 4in potted plant is roughly twice the size of a 3in pot, and a 3in potted plant is typically twice the size of a 2in pot. Needless to say, we do our best to offer big & healthy plants which were categorized honestly, and are representative of the photos we've got listed on the site. Every potted plant we sell is shipped bare root, and the root ball of the plant is carefully wrapped in paper towels before it's placed back into it's cleaned pot for shipping. From there, it's wrapped in clean brown packing paper and labeled with it's species before shipping.
 

Live Mats:

Healthy Background Plants For Terrariums How We Ship Live Mat Terrarium Plants
We're proud to offer a brand new way to order plants, and we're loving the results so far. Our Live Mats are grown with plenty of light & the ideal amount of moisture required to form a dense mat. Before shipping, each section is gently separated from it's sealed container, rinsed free of excess potting soil, and carefully placed in a partially inflated airtight bag. Depending on the specific plant, live mats can planted terrestrially or attached to a background to grow epiphytically. These are exceptionally dense portions of plants, so a little can go a long way!
 

Rooted Portions:

How We Ship Rooted Portions Of Terrarium Plants
Some plants we grow are offered in rooted portions, which are slightly smaller portions than would typically be included in a 3in pot. The length and overall portion size depends on the species being offered, but these do include a portion of the root system for easy planting & fast acclimation. When it comes time to ship, we'll carefully separate the portion from it's mother plant, rinse the roots free of potting soil, and carefully wrap the roots in a ball of moist paper towels. From there, the plant is wrapped in clean brown packing paper and labeled with it's species before shipping.
 

Clippings:

How We Ship Clippings For Terrarium Plants
Clippings are the smallest size portion of what we offer. Depending on the species, clippings may or may not include small attached roots. Plants we sell as clippings are typically epiphytic in nature, meaning they'll grow without soil on the surface of another plant (or wood decor, backgrounds, etc). The difficulty in planting clippings depends entirely on the species, so don't hesitate to ask before ordering if you are curious. When it comes time to ship, we carefully clean, wrap, and seal our clippings in partially filled bags to ensure the safest transit possible. Like everything else we sell, these are individually labeled with ID.

Aeschynanthus lobbianus

Lipstick Vine

Image Coming Soon
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This member of the Gesneriad family has green 1.25in ovate leaves, and it's large bright red flowers bloom out of a darker colored calyx. When the flowers first start to appear and before they open, each resembles a stick of lipstick. Like many Gesneriads, the flowers are especially large & showy. As a houseplant, we recommend planting these in a hanging pot or basket. Fertilizing monthly with a heavily diluted, nitrogen-light fertilizer can help encourage flowering. It's especially important to not overdo it with nitrogen if you'll be trying to encourage these to flower more often. (It can build-up in the soil!) If you aren't looking to force these to flower often, we recommend feeding them every 2-3 months with a mild & balanced nutrient mix. If you'll be growing Aeschynanthus lobbianus in a live vivarium environment, this trailing species does best when planted up high on a background. (Additional fertilization isn't generally necessary!) These are usually sold not flowering.

Aeschynanthus longicaulis

Tiger Stripe Vine

Tiger Stripe Vine Tiger Stripe Vine
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This plant belongs to a family of plants called gesneriads. The tops of the leaves are mottled with lime & dark green colors, while the undersides are mottled with deep purple & light green. The plant's ovate leaves can grow upwards of 2in or so in most conditions, and the large flowers are bright yellow with a red/orange throat & a maroon calyx. This one is a slower-grower than some of the more common Aeschynanthus on the market. As a houseplant, it'll do well mounted in a hanging pot or basket so long as there's a fair amount of humidity. In a live vivarium environment, this trailing species does best when it's planted high & allowed to grow downward. It can be grown epiphytically or planted in live vivarium substrate.

Aeschynanthus sp.

A small-leaf variety of Lipstick Vine

Aeschynanthus Sp. Lipstick Vine Small Leaf Aechnanthus sp. Dwarf Vine For Terrariums
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
We purchased a handful of these plants as "Aeschynanthus sp." from a hobbyist grower back in 2015, and we've been working with it ever since. The small leaves range in size from 1/2in to just shy of 1in, making it a very attractive little plant. It's a trailing plant which seems to tolerate a wide variety of lighting conditions, but it does best with plenty of moisture. We don't recommend this one as a houseplant, since it seems to grow best in 65%+ relative humidity. Direct misting is totally fine with this plant! We've had success planting it in substrate, as well as mounting it epiphytically. Unlike most plants we sell, this one is offered without an official ID, so it's especially inexpensive.

Callisia repens is versatile, quick growing, and forgiving. With purple/green lightly fuzzy leaves and deep purple stems, it's no wonder this species is a very popular plant. This is one of the most bulletproof varieties we offer, and is extremely tolerant of a wide variety of conditions. As a houseplant, these will grow best in a hanging pot or basket. They can also be planted in a standard pot, if you don't mind trimming a little more often. In a terrarium, Callisia repens can be planted terrestrially & allowed to creep along the substrate level, up on a background & allowed to trail downward, or down low towards a background to grow upward. A very quick grower.

Columnea 'Carnival'

Columnea 'Carnival'
(Columnea 'Carnival' is the small-leaved green vining plant with yellow flowers running diagonally upward from left to right!)
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
There are a lot of "favorite plants" out there, but this one tops Mike's list for easy to grow trailing plants. In ideal conditions, the new growth of this plant can have red hues along the edges of the usually green leaves. The large bright yellow flowers have bright red edges, and this plant isn't shy about flowering fairly often. When it's available, this species is one of our fastest-selling trailing plants. As a houseplant, we recommend planting it in a hanging pot where there's plenty of natural filtered sunlight. In a terrarium, it's an extremely versatile grower which can be planted up high as a trailing plant, or down low as a scandent grower. If planted on substrate level, it will creep around until it finds a surface to grow up & onto. It'll also thrive when planted epiphytically, provided the environment is humid & misted fairly regularly. This plant grows easiest in 70% humidity or higher, with a minimum terrarium humidity range of around 55-60%.

Columnea sp.

Columnea sp. Columnea sp.
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This interesting Gesneriad has small bright green leaves, and grows fairly quickly. The mother plant of the plants we've got available was a gift to us from one of our suppliers back in 2015, and it's proven to be a really nice little vivarium plant. We can't be too specific as to it's native region, but all Columnea are endemic to tropical America. Thrives under bright lighting with plenty of humidity. We haven't grown this one as a houseplant, since we've seen it do best when humidity is kept over 60%. In a terrarium, we recommend mounting it on a background & allowing it to trail downward. If humidity is high & the plant has access to regular misting, it can be grown epiphytically without much of a fuss. Since these are offered without an official species ID, they are nice & inexpensive option!

Cyanotis kewensis

Teddy Bear Vine

Cyanotis kewensis Cyanotis kewensis
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
A member of the Commelinaceae family of flowering plants, sharing some relation to the more common Tradescantia & Callisia "Wandering Jew" plants. The fuzzy deep green leaves of this plant are purple underneath, and grow slightly curled. Like it's cousins, Cyanotis kewensis grows tolerates a wide variety of both lighting & substrate conditions, but doesn't grow as quite as quickly. As a houseplant, this is typically grown in hanging baskets or pots. The Teddy Bear Vine seems to tolerate short periods of dryness better than many plants we carry. In a terrarium, it's a suitable choice for vivarium dwelling species of a variety of different sizes.

Cyanotis somaliensis

Kitten Ears

On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Cyanotis somaliensis is an interesting plant with fuzzy green leaves. Although it's technically a tropical species, this plant seems to tolerate slightly less humid conditions than the majority of plants we grow. Magenta flowers sprout occasionally. As a houseplant, we typically see this species in hanging pots or baskets which are allowed to dry slightly before watering. In a terrarium environment, we recommend placing it out of any direct path of frequent misting. This plant tolerates heat, but requires some humidity to thrive.

Dischidia 'Geri'

Dischidia 'Geri'
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This plant features bright green ~1in leaves which bend backwards slightly as they grow. In ideal conditions with bright lighting, the edges of the leaves can display more of a red hue. As a houseplant, this species does best in a hanging pot or basket in partial shade or filtered sun. In a terrarium, we recommend planting it up high and allowing it to trail downward. It can also be mounted as an epiphyte in humid conditions if they'll be misted periodically.
Special Note: We originally received this plant in early 2018 as part of a trade, and it's been a source of contention within the team ever since. Some sources say it's latin name is Dischidia oiantha, but it's leaves seem to grow a bit larger by comparison, and the shape seems a bit different as well. (Photo) It's possible it's an age-related size discrepancy, but if you've got solid info on this, please let us know. For now we're keeping the plants separate until we know for sure. The available plants are the offspring of the Dischidia 'Geri' plant we received in early 2018.

Dischidia oiantha

Dischidia oiantha
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Dischidia oiantha is a pretty, trailing variety of plant with small pale green leaves. It grows in a cascading pattern, featuring tiny white flowers which sprout sporadically in clusters. As a houseplant these will grow best in a hanging pot which has at least some natural filtered sunlight. In a terrarium, we recommend planting or mounting it up high & allowing it to trail downward. Enclosures with 70%+ humidity will likely be able to grow this plant epiphytically without much effort, provided that the mounting surface is misted periodically.

Dischidia ovata

Watermelon Vine / Watermelon Hoya

Watermelon Dischidia Watermelon Dischidia
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This uncommon epiphytic plant is a favorite within the terrarium plant enthusiast community. The roughly 1in leaves of this plant carry a watermelon-like pattern which looks awesome in person. In ideal conditions with bright light, the green coloration can brighten to a light red, while the plant will turn mostly green in conditions which aren't bright enough. We've seen it grown as a houseplant in hanging pots & baskets, but it seems to be especially popular in terrariums. We recommend mounting these epiphytically up high and allowing them to trail downward. In humid environments, the root systems will quickly spread to surrounding decor & make for an awesome display once grown-in.

Epipremnum aureum

Golden Pothos

Golden Pothos Golden Pothos
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This common plant is incredibly easy to grow, and is an excellent choice for a beginner or someone looking for a nearly non-killable plant! Over the course of several years, these plants can grow to be incredibly long in the wild. As a houseplant, this species will grow in just about any type of container, but is most typically planted in a hanging pot or basket. Anything from filtered sunlight to deep shade is well tolerated. As a vivarium plant, this species grows fairly quickly and will require some occasional pruning to keep it in check. On the bright side, it's very easy to propagate so nothing goes to waste. This is an appropriate choice for enclosures housing larger species like small Monitor Lizards and even certain Snakes. Can be grown epiphytically in frequently misted enclosures with greater than 70% relative humidity.

Ficus pumila 'Minima'

Dwarf Creeping Fig

Ficus pumila 'Minima' Ficus pumila 'Minima'
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This is a harder to find miniature cultivar of the far more common Ficus pumila plant. This one is a slower growing creeper which forms dense mats over time. As a houseplant this variety is typically grown in hanging pots or baskets which must be kept moist, and do best in more humid conditions when possible. It's lighting requirements range from filtered sunlight to partial shade. In a terrarium, we've had the most luck mounting these plants on backgrounds & other decor, and allowing them to follow their natural dense mat over time. The results are spectacular, and it's growth rate is much more manageable than it's larger Ficus pumila relative!

Ficus pumila 'Quercifolia'

Oak Leaf Creeping Fig

Ficus pumila 'Quercifolia' Ficus pumila 'Quercifolia'
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This is a harder to find miniature cultivar of the far more common Ficus pumila plant. It's leaves are even smaller than the 'Minima' cultivar, and it's creeping mat-forming growth pattern is exceptionally manageable with only occasional pruning. We don't see this plant often kept as a houseplant since it seems to do best with high humidity, but it would be well suited to a hanging pot or basket so long as it's kept moist. It's lighting requirements range from filtered sunlight to partial shade. In a terrarium, we've had the most luck mounting these plants on backgrounds & other decor, and allowing them to follow their natural dense mat over time. The results are spectacular for anyone looking for a green living wall, or a vine-covered piece of wood/rock decor. Recommended for enclosures with 70% minimum relative humidity.

Ficus vaccinioides

Blueberry Fig

Ficus vaccinioides Ficus vaccinioides
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This rarer relative of Creeping Fig is a little easier to manage. The leaves are lanceolate rather than ovate like F. pumila, and this plant can produce little berries on rare occasion. Ficus vaccinioides seems to grow a couple inches upward before arching downward when planted in a hanging basket. In a terrarium environment this versatile grower can be planted up high & allowed to trail downward, or down low & allowed to climb upward. In either case, the plant is able to form fairly dense mats, achieving the popular "green wall" effect in ideal humid conditions. Like the other creeping Ficus species we carry, this one's soil/substrate must never be allowed to dry out. This one can get a little out of hand if it's left to it's own devices and not pruned! Recommended for enclosures with 65% minimum relative humidity.

Hoya carnosa

Wax Plant

Hoya carnosa
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Hoya Carnosa (and it's variegated cultivar) is probably the most common species of Hoya in the horticultural industry. It's an extremely forgiving, reasonably slow growing plant. Once mature, this plant can throw awesome looking white & pink flower clusters if kept near bright light with available nutrients. As a houseplant, this is commonly grown in hanging plants & baskets. In a terrarium, this hardy species is most commonly planted up high & allowed to trail downward. The plants woody stems are fairly slow growing, but are extremely resilient when housed with larger inhabitant species. We've seen this plant grown epiphytically, but it seems to do best when simply grown in substrate. If the humidity of your environment is over 75% continuously and a moderate amount of misting is available, epiphytically mounting this plant may be another option.

▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Detailed, intricate patterns on each of the small (1/2-3/4in) leaves make this plant a beautiful addition to any collection. Tolerates a wide variety of lighting & humidity, but thrives with plenty of both. Once mature, this plant can throw awesome looking cream & pink flower clusters if kept near bright light with available nutrients. As a houseplant, we recommend starting these in a smaller pot, and eventually repotting into a larger container. In a terrarium we suggest planting this trailing plant up high, and allowing it to trail & grow downward for best results. We've found that the plant grows faster as it matures & spreads.

Native to tropical Madagascar, this works as both a ground cover and/or a trailing plant. A great choice for vivariums, and is very easy to grow. We grow the red, white, and pink cultivars of this plant in limited volume. This plant can handle larger inhabitants walking on it without doing much damage, and is also delicate enough for use with smaller species. While it can grow to a fairly large size, it's very easy to trim in an enclosed setting. Grows great in a variety of conditions.

Marcgravia rectiflora

Marcgravia rectiflora Marcgravia rectiflora
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Marcgravia rectiflora is one of the rarer plants we work with, and each (8-14 leaf) plant clipping we offer took a few months to grow. These are not typically kept as houseplants, since they do best with higher levels of humidity. Planting/mounting them on moist sphagnum to encourage growth is the most proven & reliable practice, although mounting them to usually-moist backgrounds or wood decor works too if automated misters are used to ensure they never dry out. We recommend keeping humidity pretty high (75%+) with this tropical Central American species, since periods of complete dryness aren't well tolerated. This shingling plant prefers to grow upward toward light, so mounting them lower on a background is good practice. Once these shingling plants establish themselves (acclimate), the growth rate increases drastically. We consider this a slightly more difficult plant than the majority of vining species we offer, but it's one of the easiest Marcgravia species to care for.

On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This unique trailing plant is endemic to tropical Brazil. As a houseplant, this species is typically grown in a hanging basket with access to partial shade or filtered sun. In a terrarium, it's woody stems make this plant a little more difficult to train than the trailing plants of similar appearance which we offer, but the frequent bright orange flower production makes it worth the effort! Stems are lined with 3/8-5/8in glossy leaves which give this plant an easy to identify appearance. It can be grown epiphytically, but we only recommend doing so in enclosures with average relative humidity conditions over 75%. Does best in relatively high humidity, with direct misting being well tolerated.

Pellionia pulchra

Satin Pellionia / Polynesian Ivy

Pellionia pulchra
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This plant's uniquely patterned green & deep green leaves make it really stand out. The undersides of the leaves display a deep red hue through the veins. As a houseplant, these can be grown in fairly humid & warm areas under partial to full shade. Hanging pots or baskets are an appropriate choice, but they are far easier to grow in a terrarium in our experience! In it's natural setting, these are understory dwelling plants. Higher humidity is mandatory with this species, as lower humidity will cause drying out & discoloration of the leaves. This plant benefits from direct misting, and should be planted in a fairly dim or shaded location for best growth. These can either be allowed to simply creep along a terrarium's substrate level, or mounted up higher and encouraged to trail downward.

▾ Show Plant Description ▾
The shiny deep & bright green leaves of this plant can also show a red hue on new growth when grown in good conditions. It requires fairly high humidity to thrive, so growing this one as a houseplant is a little tricky. If you'll be keeping this one in a hanging pot, we recommend ensuring the soil never dries out and giving it access to partial shade or filtered sun for best results. Otherwise, this species is best suited to most tropical terrarium conditions. The waxy, brightly colored 1-1.75in leaves make for a really great looking species. In our experience it does best under fairly bright light, so long as there's plenty of humidity as well. These can either be allowed to simply creep along a terrarium's substrate level, or mounted up higher and encouraged to trail downward.

Peperomia prostrata

Peperomia prostrata Peperomia prostrata
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This is one of the more 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. The tiny (~1/8-3/8in) leaves of this species have awesome patterns with colors which brighten or fade depending on the conditions. In our experience higher amounts of PAR (75+µMol/M²S) in higher humidity (75% R/H) allows the plant to present with it's boldest coloration & quickest growth. As a houseplant kept in a hanging basket or pot, it's higher humidity requirements can require a little extra care (misting) than some of our other Peperomia. This is one of the more difficult of the usually easy to grow Peperomia species we offer, and isn't available often. Does best when planted up high and is allowed to hang & trail downward. Tolerates low to moderate amounts of light, and does best with moist soil.

Philodendron ornatum

Velvet Leaf Philodendron

Philodendron ornatum
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This rare & slower-growing species of Philodendron has been growing in our shop for years, and isn't something we're able to offer often. It is native to tropical Brazil and has high humidity requirements, so it's not recommended for use as a houseplant. It's immature form is ideal for terrariums, and produces bluish-green uniquely patterned shiny leaves along it's long trailing stems. It's mature form with larger & wider leaves is unlikely to happen in a smaller terrarium, but photos of this plant in-situ look spectacular. In our grow room, the mother plant of the individuals available here has reached over 14ft long, and climbed two levels of grow racks. Our experience points towards this species having a fairly wide tolerance of lighting conditions. This species can technically be planted up high & allowed to trail, but we think it looks best as a climber (planted low).

Pilea glauca

Pilea Aquamarine

Pilea aquamarine Pilea aquamarine
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
A delicate, beautiful trailing species of Pilea which makes an excellent choice in a wide variety of enclosures. With red stems & blue-green ("Aquamarine") colored leaves, this is a really unique & attractive little plant. When grown as a houseplant, it thrives best in a pot which allows it's stems to hang downward. In an enclosure it can either be planted up high on a background & allowed to trail downward, or down low on the substrate layer where it will creep along the terrarium floor. We've had plenty of luck growing this species epiphytically when humidity stays high, otherwise it can be planted in any well-draining live vivarium substrate with great results. This species is our best selling Pilea.

Pilea nummulariifolia

Pilea Creeping Charlie

Creeping Charlie Creeping Charlie
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Creeping Charlie is a common plant which is tolerant of a wide variety of conditions. It is unrelated to the common weed Glechoma hederacea which shares the same common name. As a houseplant, this species will survive in a wide variety of containers, with hanging pots & baskets being a popular choice. In an enclosure, it can grow to form green walls or carpets if desired. This is the most tolerant Pilea species we carry for use in enclosures housing medium & larger sized species, since it can handle quite a bit of disturbance once it's acclimated to a surface. This is a fast growing plant which is super easy to care for, so plan to do some pruning to keep the plant's growth pattern in check.

Scindapsus pictus

Satin Pothos

Satin Pothos Satin Pothos
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This larger-leafed trailing plant has green satin textured leaves mottled with shiny silver markings. As a houseplant, it can be easily grown in a hanging pot or basket exposed to indirect sunlight. Lower light is tolerated, but the color & patterns on the leaves won't be as pronounced. In a terrarium environment, we recommend planting this species up high & allowing it to trail downward. Slower growing than some of the similar-sized options. Tolerates being planted in enclosures containing fairly large inhabitant species.

Soleirolia soleirolii

Dwarf Baby Tears / Angel's Tears / Irish Moss

Dwarf Baby Tears
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This plant was originally classified as Helxine soleirolii, but is now called Soleirolia soleirolii. An interesting plant that will thrive terrestrially or aquatically. This is not commonly kept as a houseplant, due to it's high humidity requirements. A great choice for the border of a water feature. Each tiny leaf is only about 1/16"-1/8" of an inch across, making for a very intricate ground cover for smaller species. Not suggested for use in vivariums housing larger species, due to the plant's delicate nature. Recommended for environments which will average at least 65-70% relative humidity. Tolerates moderate to bright lighting.

Tradescantia fluminensis

Green Wandering Jew

Green Wandering Jew
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
The ovate, shiny green leaves of this plant quick growing plant typically stay around 1-2.25in long. Three-petaled white flowers will pop up occasionally if it's allowed to grow-out for awhile. As a houseplant, we recommend planting it in a hanging pot or basket. It'll tolerate anything from filtered sunlight to deep shade, so it's a really versatile & forgiving species to work with. We recommend pruning any dead growth expeditiously, since it can cause issues in the long run. In a terrarium, it can form a green wall or carpet after not much time, but will require pruning much more often than any of the slower-growing options out there. Interminable pruning of growth should be expected regardless of enclosure size for this extremely fast going plant. At NEHERP, we use this plant most often in grow out & temporary enclosures, since a little portion will go a long way in not much time.

Tradescantia zebrina

Wandering Jew

Wandering Jew Purple Wandering Jew Purple
On Sale Now!
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
The deep purple & greenish silver striped coloration of this plant is awesome in person, and it's hues become bolder in ideal growing conditions. Native to tropical Central + South America, Tradescantia zebrina grows extremely quickly in higher levels of humidity, and is incredibly easy to care for. As a houseplant, we recommend growing it in a hanging pot or basket, since it's trailing growth will quickly overgrow any typical tabletop pot. All of the plants we ship are pulled from hanging baskets at NEHERP, since caring for such a fast-growing plant in 3in Pot Equiv.s (like we do most other plants) just wouldn't adequately keep up with this plant's growth rate. As you may have guessed, this plant will grow incredibly quickly in a humid terrarium environment. We don't recommend it for long-term enclosures, unless you don't mind very frequent pruning sessions. From our experience, this plant's most useful terrarium applications include things like temporary quarantine & grow-out enclosures, where the need for quick growth outweighs the ease of long-term maintenance. In the amount of time it took you to read this description, we've grown roughly 2 more linear feet of Tradescantia zebrina at NEHERP. :-) (Not really, but you get the idea!)

Aeschynanthus lobbianus

Lipstick Vine

Image Coming Soon
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This member of the Gesneriad family has green 1.25in ovate leaves, and it's large bright red flowers bloom out of a darker colored calyx. When the flowers first start to appear and before they open, each resembles a stick of lipstick. Like many Gesneriads, the flowers are especially large & showy. As a houseplant, we recommend planting these in a hanging pot or basket. Fertilizing monthly with a heavily diluted, nitrogen-light fertilizer can help encourage flowering. It's especially important to not overdo it with nitrogen if you'll be trying to encourage these to flower more often. (It can build-up in the soil!) If you aren't looking to force these to flower often, we recommend feeding them every 2-3 months with a mild & balanced nutrient mix. If you'll be growing Aeschynanthus lobbianus in a live vivarium environment, this trailing species does best when planted up high on a background. (Additional fertilization isn't generally necessary!) These are usually sold not flowering.

Aeschynanthus longicaulis

Tiger Stripe Vine

Tiger Stripe Vine Tiger Stripe Vine
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This plant belongs to a family of plants called gesneriads. The tops of the leaves are mottled with lime & dark green colors, while the undersides are mottled with deep purple & light green. The plant's ovate leaves can grow upwards of 2in or so in most conditions, and the large flowers are bright yellow with a red/orange throat & a maroon calyx. This one is a slower-grower than some of the more common Aeschynanthus on the market. As a houseplant, it'll do well mounted in a hanging pot or basket so long as there's a fair amount of humidity. In a live vivarium environment, this trailing species does best when it's planted high & allowed to grow downward. It can be grown epiphytically or planted in live vivarium substrate.

Aeschynanthus sp.

A small-leaf variety of Lipstick Vine

Aeschynanthus Sp. Lipstick Vine Small Leaf Aechnanthus sp. Dwarf Vine For Terrariums
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
We purchased a handful of these plants as "Aeschynanthus sp." from a hobbyist grower back in 2015, and we've been working with it ever since. The small leaves range in size from 1/2in to just shy of 1in, making it a very attractive little plant. It's a trailing plant which seems to tolerate a wide variety of lighting conditions, but it does best with plenty of moisture. We don't recommend this one as a houseplant, since it seems to grow best in 65%+ relative humidity. Direct misting is totally fine with this plant! We've had success planting it in substrate, as well as mounting it epiphytically. Unlike most plants we sell, this one is offered without an official ID, so it's especially inexpensive.

Callisia repens

Bolivian Wandering Jew

Callisia repens
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Callisia repens is versatile, quick growing, and forgiving. With purple/green lightly fuzzy leaves and deep purple stems, it's no wonder this species is a very popular plant. This is one of the most bulletproof varieties we offer, and is extremely tolerant of a wide variety of conditions. As a houseplant, these will grow best in a hanging pot or basket. They can also be planted in a standard pot, if you don't mind trimming a little more often. In a terrarium, Callisia repens can be planted terrestrially & allowed to creep along the substrate level, up on a background & allowed to trail downward, or down low towards a background to grow upward. A very quick grower.

Codonanthe devosiana

Codonanthe devosiana Codonanthe devosiana
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This awesome uncommon epiphyte from tropical South America is one of our favorite plants currently being propagated at NEHERP. Codonanthe devosiana frequently produces an abundance of bell shaped white flowers which blush pink once mature. It's a fairly slow growing member of the Gesneriad family which prefers high humidity & low to medium amounts of light. As a houseplant, we recommend planting it in a hanging pot or basket & allowing it to trail downward. In a terrarium, this trailing species does best when planted up high on a background, and allowed to drape & spread downward.

Columnea 'Carnival'

Columnea 'Carnival'
(Columnea 'Carnival' is the small-leaved green vining plant with yellow flowers running diagonally upward from left to right!)
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
There are a lot of "favorite plants" out there, but this one tops Mike's list for easy to grow trailing plants. In ideal conditions, the new growth of this plant can have red hues along the edges of the usually green leaves. The large bright yellow flowers have bright red edges, and this plant isn't shy about flowering fairly often. When it's available, this species is one of our fastest-selling trailing plants. As a houseplant, we recommend planting it in a hanging pot where there's plenty of natural filtered sunlight. In a terrarium, it's an extremely versatile grower which can be planted up high as a trailing plant, or down low as a scandent grower. If planted on substrate level, it will creep around until it finds a surface to grow up & onto. It'll also thrive when planted epiphytically, provided the environment is humid & misted fairly regularly. This plant grows easiest in 70% humidity or higher, with a minimum terrarium humidity range of around 55-60%.

Columnea sp.

Columnea sp. Columnea sp.
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This interesting Gesneriad has small bright green leaves, and grows fairly quickly. The mother plant of the plants we've got available was a gift to us from one of our suppliers back in 2015, and it's proven to be a really nice little vivarium plant. We can't be too specific as to it's native region, but all Columnea are endemic to tropical America. Thrives under bright lighting with plenty of humidity. We haven't grown this one as a houseplant, since we've seen it do best when humidity is kept over 60%. In a terrarium, we recommend mounting it on a background & allowing it to trail downward. If humidity is high & the plant has access to regular misting, it can be grown epiphytically without much of a fuss. Since these are offered without an official species ID, they are nice & inexpensive option!

Cyanotis kewensis

Teddy Bear Vine

Cyanotis kewensis Cyanotis kewensis
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
A member of the Commelinaceae family of flowering plants, sharing some relation to the more common Tradescantia & Callisia "Wandering Jew" plants. The fuzzy deep green leaves of this plant are purple underneath, and grow slightly curled. Like it's cousins, Cyanotis kewensis grows tolerates a wide variety of both lighting & substrate conditions, but doesn't grow as quite as quickly. As a houseplant, this is typically grown in hanging baskets or pots. The Teddy Bear Vine seems to tolerate short periods of dryness better than many plants we carry. In a terrarium, it's a suitable choice for vivarium dwelling species of a variety of different sizes.

Cyanotis somaliensis

Kitten Ears

▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Cyanotis somaliensis is an interesting plant with fuzzy green leaves. Although it's technically a tropical species, this plant seems to tolerate slightly less humid conditions than the majority of plants we grow. Magenta flowers sprout occasionally. As a houseplant, we typically see this species in hanging pots or baskets which are allowed to dry slightly before watering. In a terrarium environment, we recommend placing it out of any direct path of frequent misting. This plant tolerates heat, but requires some humidity to thrive.

Dischidia 'Geri'

Dischidia 'Geri'
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This plant features bright green ~1in leaves which bend backwards slightly as they grow. In ideal conditions with bright lighting, the edges of the leaves can display more of a red hue. As a houseplant, this species does best in a hanging pot or basket in partial shade or filtered sun. In a terrarium, we recommend planting it up high and allowing it to trail downward. It can also be mounted as an epiphyte in humid conditions if they'll be misted periodically.
Special Note: We originally received this plant in early 2018 as part of a trade, and it's been a source of contention within the team ever since. Some sources say it's latin name is Dischidia oiantha, but it's leaves seem to grow a bit larger by comparison, and the shape seems a bit different as well. (Photo) It's possible it's an age-related size discrepancy, but if you've got solid info on this, please let us know. For now we're keeping the plants separate until we know for sure. The available plants are the offspring of the Dischidia 'Geri' plant we received in early 2018.

Watermelon Vine / Watermelon Hoya

Watermelon Dischidia Watermelon Dischidia
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This uncommon epiphytic plant is a favorite within the terrarium plant enthusiast community. The roughly 1in leaves of this plant carry a watermelon-like pattern which looks awesome in person. In ideal conditions with bright light, the green coloration can brighten to a light red, while the plant will turn mostly green in conditions which aren't bright enough. We've seen it grown as a houseplant in hanging pots & baskets, but it seems to be especially popular in terrariums. We recommend mounting these epiphytically up high and allowing them to trail downward. In humid environments, the root systems will quickly spread to surrounding decor & make for an awesome display once grown-in.

▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This common plant is incredibly easy to grow, and is an excellent choice for a beginner or someone looking for a nearly non-killable plant! Over the course of several years, these plants can grow to be incredibly long in the wild. As a houseplant, this species will grow in just about any type of container, but is most typically planted in a hanging pot or basket. Anything from filtered sunlight to deep shade is well tolerated. As a vivarium plant, this species grows fairly quickly and will require some occasional pruning to keep it in check. On the bright side, it's very easy to propagate so nothing goes to waste. This is an appropriate choice for enclosures housing larger species like small Monitor Lizards and even certain Snakes. Can be grown epiphytically in frequently misted enclosures with greater than 70% relative humidity.

Dwarf Creeping Fig

Ficus pumila 'Minima' Ficus pumila 'Minima'
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This is a harder to find miniature cultivar of the far more common Ficus pumila plant. This one is a slower growing creeper which forms dense mats over time. As a houseplant this variety is typically grown in hanging pots or baskets which must be kept moist, and do best in more humid conditions when possible. It's lighting requirements range from filtered sunlight to partial shade. In a terrarium, we've had the most luck mounting these plants on backgrounds & other decor, and allowing them to follow their natural dense mat over time. The results are spectacular, and it's growth rate is much more manageable than it's larger Ficus pumila relative!

Ficus pumila 'Quercifolia'

Oak Leaf Creeping Fig

Ficus pumila 'Quercifolia' Ficus pumila 'Quercifolia'
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This is a harder to find miniature cultivar of the far more common Ficus pumila plant. It's leaves are even smaller than the 'Minima' cultivar, and it's creeping mat-forming growth pattern is exceptionally manageable with only occasional pruning. We don't see this plant often kept as a houseplant since it seems to do best with high humidity, but it would be well suited to a hanging pot or basket so long as it's kept moist. It's lighting requirements range from filtered sunlight to partial shade. In a terrarium, we've had the most luck mounting these plants on backgrounds & other decor, and allowing them to follow their natural dense mat over time. The results are spectacular for anyone looking for a green living wall, or a vine-covered piece of wood/rock decor. Recommended for enclosures with 70% minimum relative humidity.

Ficus vaccinioides

Blueberry Fig

Ficus vaccinioides Ficus vaccinioides
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This rarer relative of Creeping Fig is a little easier to manage. The leaves are lanceolate rather than ovate like F. pumila, and this plant can produce little berries on rare occasion. Ficus vaccinioides seems to grow a couple inches upward before arching downward when planted in a hanging basket. In a terrarium environment this versatile grower can be planted up high & allowed to trail downward, or down low & allowed to climb upward. In either case, the plant is able to form fairly dense mats, achieving the popular "green wall" effect in ideal humid conditions. Like the other creeping Ficus species we carry, this one's soil/substrate must never be allowed to dry out. This one can get a little out of hand if it's left to it's own devices and not pruned! Recommended for enclosures with 65% minimum relative humidity.

Hoya carnosa

Wax Plant

Hoya carnosa
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Hoya carnosa (and it's variegated cultivar) is probably the most common species of Hoya in the horticultural industry. It's an extremely forgiving, reasonably slow growing plant. Once mature, this plant can throw awesome looking white & pink flower clusters if kept near bright light with available nutrients. As a houseplant, this is commonly grown in hanging plants & baskets. In a terrarium, this hardy species is most commonly planted up high & allowed to trail downward. The plants woody stems are fairly slow growing, but are extremely resilient when housed with larger inhabitant species. We've seen this plant grown epiphytically, but it seems to do best when simply grown in substrate. If the humidity of your environment is over 75% continuously and a moderate amount of misting is available, epiphytically mounting this plant may be another option.

Hoya curtisii

Hoya curtisii Hoya curtisii
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Detailed, intricate patterns on each of the small (1/2-3/4in) leaves make this plant a beautiful addition to any collection. Tolerates a wide variety of lighting & humidity, but thrives with plenty of both. Once mature, this plant can throw awesome looking cream & pink flower clusters if kept near bright light with available nutrients. As a houseplant, we recommend starting these in a smaller pot, and eventually repotting into a larger container. In a terrarium we suggest planting this trailing plant up high, and allowing it to trail & grow downward for best results. We've found that the plant grows faster as it matures & spreads.

Marcgravia rectiflora

Marcgravia rectiflora Marcgravia rectiflora
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Marcgravia rectiflora is one of the rarer plants we work with, and each (8-14 leaf) plant clipping we offer took a few months to grow. These are not typically kept as houseplants, since they do best with higher levels of humidity. Planting/mounting them on moist sphagnum to encourage growth is the most proven & reliable practice, although mounting them to usually-moist backgrounds or wood decor works too if automated misters are used to ensure they never dry out. We recommend keeping humidity pretty high (75%+) with this tropical Central American species, since periods of complete dryness aren't well tolerated. This shingling plant prefers to grow upward toward light, so mounting them lower on a background is good practice. Once these shingling plants establish themselves (acclimate), the growth rate increases drastically. We consider this a slightly more difficult plant than the majority of vining species we offer, but it's one of the easiest Marcgravia species to care for.

Nematanthus gregarius

Goldfish Plant

Goldfish Plant Goldfish Plant
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This unique trailing plant is endemic to tropical Brazil. As a houseplant, this species is typically grown in a hanging basket with access to partial shade or filtered sun. In a terrarium, it's woody stems make this plant a little more difficult to train than the trailing plants of similar appearance which we offer, but the frequent bright orange flower production makes it worth the effort! Stems are lined with 3/8-5/8in glossy leaves which give this plant an easy to identify appearance. It can be grown epiphytically, but we only recommend doing so in enclosures with average relative humidity conditions over 75%. Does best in relatively high humidity, with direct misting being well tolerated.

Pellionia pulchra

Satin Pellionia / Polynesian Ivy

Pellionia pulchra
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This plant's uniquely patterned green & deep green leaves make it really stand out. The undersides of the leaves display a deep red hue through the veins. As a houseplant, these can be grown in fairly humid & warm areas under partial to full shade. Hanging pots or baskets are an appropriate choice, but they are far easier to grow in a terrarium in our experience! In it's natural setting, these are understory dwelling plants. Higher humidity is mandatory with this species, as lower humidity will cause drying out & discoloration of the leaves. This plant benefits from direct misting, and should be planted in a fairly dim or shaded location for best growth. These can either be allowed to simply creep along a terrarium's substrate level, or mounted up higher and encouraged to trail downward.

Pellionia repens

Pellionia repens
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
The shiny deep & bright green leaves of this plant can also show a red hue on new growth when grown in good conditions. It requires fairly high humidity to thrive, so growing this one as a houseplant is a little tricky. If you'll be keeping this one in a hanging pot, we recommend ensuring the soil never dries out and giving it access to partial shade or filtered sun for best results. Otherwise, this species is best suited to most tropical terrarium conditions. The waxy, brightly colored 1-1.75in leaves make for a really great looking species. In our experience it does best under fairly bright light, so long as there's plenty of humidity as well. These can either be allowed to simply creep along a terrarium's substrate level, or mounted up higher and encouraged to trail downward.

Peperomia prostrata

Peperomia prostrata Peperomia prostrata
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This is one of the more 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. The tiny (~1/8-3/8in) leaves of this species have awesome patterns with colors which brighten or fade depending on the conditions. In our experience higher amounts of PAR (75+µMol/M²S) in higher humidity (75% R/H) allows the plant to present with it's boldest coloration & quickest growth. As a houseplant kept in a hanging basket or pot, it's higher humidity requirements can require a little extra care (misting) than some of our other Peperomia. This is one of the more difficult of the usually easy to grow Peperomia species we offer, and isn't available often. Does best when planted up high and is allowed to hang & trail downward. Tolerates low to moderate amounts of light, and does best with moist soil.

Philodendron hederaceum 'Brazil'

Philodendron Brazil

Philodendron hederaceum 'Brazil'
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This popular species of Philodendron is native to much of Central + South America including (as you may have guessed), Brazil. The yellow variegation helps this plant stand out from the common all-green Philodendron scandens variety. This trailing plant is incredibly easy to care for, and is a very forgiving choice for growers of any experience level. As a houseplant, it's typically grown in a hanging pot or basket. This species tolerates anything from shade to filtered sunlight. In a terrarium environment, we recommend planting it high on a background or other decor, and allowing it to trail downward. It's fairly quick growth will require some pruning from time to time.

Philodendron ornatum

Velvet Leaf Philodendron

Philodendron ornatum
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
This rare & slower-growing species of Philodendron has been growing in our shop for years, and isn't something we're able to offer often. It is native to tropical Brazil and has high humidity requirements, so it's not recommended for use as a houseplant. It's immature form is ideal for terrariums, and produces bluish-green uniquely patterned shiny leaves along it's long trailing stems. It's mature form with larger & wider leaves is unlikely to happen in a smaller terrarium, but photos of this plant in-situ look spectacular. In our grow room, the mother plant of the individuals available here has reached over 14ft long, and climbed two levels of grow racks. Our experience points towards this species having a fairly wide tolerance of lighting conditions. This species can technically be planted up high & allowed to trail, but we think it looks best as a climber (planted low).

Pilea depressa 'Tiny Tears'

Pilea Tiny Tears

Pilea depressa 'Tiny Tears' Pilea depressa 'Tiny Tears'
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Another extremely easy to grow Pilea species which tolerates a wide variety of conditions. Smaller than standard Pilea depressa, Tiny Tears is closer in size to Pilea glauca with very small (1/8in max) green leaves. Easy to propagate from clipping, and grows up and onto just about anything. As a houseplant, this species does best planted in a small hanging pot or basket, but will require a fair amount of humidity & moisture to thrive. In an enclosure, Tiny Tears does great when planted up high & is allowed to trail downward. It can alternatively be planted on the substrate layer, where it'll wander over the surface & climb onto moist decor.

Pilea glauca

Pilea Aquamarine

Pilea aquamarine Pilea aquamarine
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
A delicate, beautiful trailing species of Pilea which makes an excellent choice in a wide variety of enclosures. With red stems & blue-green ("Aquamarine") colored leaves, this is a really unique & attractive little plant. When grown as a houseplant, it thrives best in a pot which allows it's stems to hang downward. In an enclosure it can either be planted up high on a background & allowed to trail downward, or down low on the substrate layer where it will creep along the terrarium floor. We've had plenty of luck growing this species epiphytically when humidity stays high, otherwise it can be planted in any well-draining live vivarium substrate with great results. This species is our best selling Pilea.

Pilea nummulariifolia

Pilea Creeping Charlie

Creeping Charlie Creeping Charlie
▾ Show Plant Description ▾
Creeping Charlie is a common plant which is tolerant of a wide variety of conditions. It is unrelated to the common weed Glechoma hederacea which shares the same common name. As a houseplant, this species will survive in a wide variety of containers, with hanging pots & baskets being a popular choice. In an enclosure, it can grow to form green walls or carpets if desired. This is the most tolerant Pilea species we carry for use in enclosures housing medium & larger sized species, since it can handle quite a bit of disturbance once it's acclimated to a surface. This is a fast growing plant which is super easy to care for, so plan to do some pruning to keep the plant's growth pattern in check.
