Default Plant ID please.


I've seen this plant...or a similar species planted in many vivs. Does anyone know the species? Or the genus?

It looks like Muehlenbeckia to me. This isn't really a viv plant, but maybe it will do OK.

If you want to grow something with a similar habit but more suited to vivs you should get some Peperomia or one of the slower-growing creeping Ficus.

depending on your tank size, they can get wide, but not excessively tall...need consistent moisture...

Thanks guys. I decided to plant it, I really like the leaf size and shape. I almost picked up some pilea and peperomias however all of the species available to me are a very dark green.

Looks like some have had some okay success with it.

Frogs seem to like it so far and it is so far doing quite well. No more room for plants in this viv. My Maranta spp. just went through a bloom. I think I need to start another viv.
