Suitable Terrarium Plants -D

***This post is a part of my April A to Z series where this year I will be highlighting different plants each day.  Check out this page to see all of my posts combined on one easy sheet. ***

 

Davallia fejeensis (Rabbit’s Food Fern)

This fern is well known by its fuzzy rhizomes sprouting new growth as it spreads.

Origin: Fiji

Lighting: indirect bright light

Soil:moist soil, but not soaked

Temperature: 60-75 degrees F.

This plant can be mounted into a background or in the substrate.  The fern can grow 6-10″ tall which makes it perfectly suited for the vivarium.

Dieffenbachia ‘Panther’

Josh’s Frogs offers a bunch of different Dieffenbachia, but I love how the leaves of the panther variety look.

Origin: Mexico & West Indies south to Argentina

Lighting: medium – high light

Soil: let the soil dry out for a bit before watering

Temperature: 60-80 degrees F

Due to the potential size of this houseplant, it can remain within a terrarium for around a year before it will need to become a dedicated houseplant ( or in my house a cat snack).SONY DSC
