Suitable Terrarium Plants – P

***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. ***

Philodendron ‘Red Empress’

Origin- hybrid

Water –medium moisture – not soggy

Temperature- warm to cool

This philodendron typically has leaves that are 6″ or smaller.  The leaves are dark green with bright red accents.  This plant will grow in a rosette form and will become shrub like.

Peperomia argyreia (Watermelon peperomia)


Origin- South America

Lighting – bright room in shaded spot- typically undercover within forests

Soil- peat based soil that drains well

Water – Do not overwater.  Allow soil to dry to the touch at the top then water.

Temperature-65-75 degrees F.  no lower than 50.

This peperomia grows up to 12″ tall and creates a small bushy rosette.  Best suited outdoors as ground cover or together with other plants indoor.  I love the leaf shape and mixture of green and silver within the plant.  This plant does flower, however they are non showy and barely visible.  This plant is very easy to grow.
