Anne, I would have never guessed! lol just kidding. I'm sure there are a fair amount of similar people here.

Anyway, to add to this thread, here's a nice unidentified vine I've been growing for some time. It was really slow at first, but has started to pick up speed. I have old plants that have leaves no larger than 1/2" and other plants that have leaves about 1 1/2". Not sure what the cultural differences are. Anyway, it is a pretty vine, I was told it is from Colombia.
Should be a great thing to cover the back of a tank with. As it looks like a tiny Cissus.

I don't know if it's a Cissus, I just thought it looked like a tiny one.

Sorry guys, I'm stumped

I have several plants, I'm not even sure what family they are in, this is one of them.

I don't think its P. viridis but I haven't seen that species before in person. P. sp. 'Iquitos' has a white stipe down the middle of the top of the leaf just like another Pep that has popped up from time to time under the name (most likely incorrect) Peperomia hernandiifolia as seen here:
http://www.cloudjungle.com/CloudJung...f%20eburna.jpg

The one in the hobby in that photo from Cloud Jungle has a few tiny and light red dots on the undersides. This new one from the Peruvian region of Iquitos looks identical except the underside is solid red and the plant has a more succulent feel to it.

Hahaha....flower? Yeah right, I'll just be lucky if it stays alive or actually grows, lol! But it's definately from a Peruvian specimen collection. Have you seen it or anything like it before?

Yeah, I might have had it at one point. Peps are so variable within species it's really hard to tell without good location data

Yep...and good locality info is hard to come by! It amazes me that all the new stuff coming in to the terrarium hobby almost never has collection or locality data.....it's makes me wonder how much is snuck into the US in peoples lugguge and consequently the source is never really mentioned. I'm sure there are plenty of other reasons too...

Collectors and hobbiest, please keep your plants tagged and keep good notes!!!

My photo just doesn't capture this species well, but I thought I would share it anyway.
This is Peperomia reptans. It has small dark green leaves, the largest being the size of a dime. It also is covered in tiny hairs, making the surface of the leaf look like felt. It's these hairs that makes it hard to photograph well. The space between the leaves are fairly short for a trailing peperomia, so the plants makes a nice specimen. I'm sure most will be underwhelmed by this photo, but it is one that I think is special.

Nice plants Ritersofly.

Here's a nice uncommon form of the uncommon fern Peltapteris peltata.

The Begonia is absolutely stunning. Deep red, with a shimmery tint. The photos dont do it justice. I cant get a better picture without a new camera! Hmmm...

The Alocasia I bought from Block Jungle at a show. It was about 8 inches tall, total. Leaves were 4 inches in length. Put it in a tank and BOOM. Thing took off. Pulled it out, now its on a rack by my window. You can see how large it is. Has beautiful velvety greens.

Oh. And my hands aren't small...

Thanks! I was walking past a hardware store on a sunny day, saw sunlight reflecting off something red on one of the stores outside plant stands. Went to investigate, found it half dead in a dried out pot. Nursed it back to life, when it grows out a little more my friend, who is a professional photographer, wants to get some pics!

I first saw this thread when I started frogging back in '09, I thought it was reaaally boring...

~2.5 years later, it's in my Top 10. Another two years and I might actually have something worth contributing. Keep em coming.

Hi Teddy. It's the natural progression of the hobby In a few years you may start liking only brown frogs and green bromeliads! lol

Thanks Dev.
Just years of accumulating stuff lol

Here's a nice Trichomanes fern. It's a filmy fern with a wiry rhizome that likes to climb up things.

Thanks guys! Lol, I always feel like a kid with 1 candy and 30 classmates.
I think it's why I tend to post a handful of pictures and then stop for awhile. I always feel bad when I don't have enough to share or even sell. There are plants I've been waiting in line for a long time and still can't get a piece. So I know that it kind of sucks. Some filmy ferns grow amazingly fast, others just creep along slowly. In the several years that I've had this one, I've only been able to send out a cutting once. Hopefully, I'll figure it out and it'll eventually be one of the fast ones!

While I'm at it here's another nice plant. It's a Begonia from Madagascar called lyallii var. masoalensis. The leaves are fairly small, the largest only a couple of inches across and it is a trailing type. The way it grows over things, makes you think of a fancy looking Begonia Lita...but better!

Hi Bonnie,
I received it as T. ankersii, but many of the photos don't look like the same plant. There does seem to be a fair amount of variation, so possibly the one I have is just a different form. It does have the same growing habit though.

For years I would look for different species whenever a shipment of T. javanicum would come into the local petshops. Nothing different ever popped up though
Sad that they still sell it for aquariums, when they really don't grow underwater. Glad that you got some for your vivs. Are you having success growing them?

Mines doing really well in a grow out tank, I just learned you can't leave it on the kitchen counter for 5 mins while mounting it (half the leaves dried up and died in that span). I saw some on ebay awhile back for around $30, but I don't think it had the species listed so I passed. I'm hoping to find some other species eventually, but it seems you have quite the wait list already heh.

Yeah, you have to be really careful with the filmy ferns. The fronds are only 1 cell layer thick and they can desicate really quickly. Yeah, filmy's are few and far between. You usually can't think about it too much or someone else will buy them!
Glad to hear you are doing well with the javanicum.
