Wandering Jew

There are many types of wandering jews that are good for terrariums.  But this feature is on the Callisia repens – Bolivian wandering jew

Origin-South America

Lighting –bright indirect light

Water – moist soil, but not wet

Temperature- 55-75 degrees F.

This plant is great for backgrounds as it will climb.  It can tolerate a variety of conditions including bright or dim light and high to medium humidity.  You will find it grows quickly and will need to be cut back so not to overtake the terrarium.wanderingjewbolivian
