Kero, I have similar ferns popping up. At first I assumed they were liverworts but now they look more like ferns. They are at the top/left/center of this pic. Whatever they are I like them.

Those are a species of Pteris. They come up everywhere here and are very variable. Some are really cool with spider like foliage and some have very large course foliage. But, they will take over since they come up from spore so easily.

hey, maybe you can help identify these two ferns that appeared in my tanks:

unidentified miniature that starts with those scaley growths shown earlier (thumb shown for size ref):


unidentified large fern (looks like a maidenhair type):


here's some other assorted foliage that is identified:
columnea 'early bird' - I just love the red edging on these


macodes petola - no foliage thread is complete without this plant!


episcia lilacina


pilea 'moon valley'


rabbit foot fern


maidenhair fern (I have the true name in my notes but am too lazy at this moment to get it)


purple passion vine

I suspect the first one is very immature and so you will have to wait. I had some Camphyloneurum phyllitidis start out just like this but it's a huge fern when mature.

The second is a Adiantum but at this size it's also hard to tell.

Default Killing Lepanthes

The Lepanthes are an awesome genus, but almost all are very cool growing (from high elevations) and (therefore) really tricky to grow. Hobbyist growers are known to bring all their Lepanthes down into their basements in the Summer months in order to keep them cool, but many still perish. If one keeps their PDFs on the cooler side all of the year, this would be the best bet.

BTW, one of the few US federally-listed endangered orchid species is Lepanthes eltorensis, a species only found on a few tall palm trees in the Carib National Forest in Puerto Rico (have a look at Natureserve.org). It would be nice if some of us plant enthusiasts could "band" together to help some of the less fortunate orchids out there.

Default Well, if Selaginella is fair game...

I think these are young fern gametophytes. Liverworts usually have more of a "thallus" or tongue from a very early age. If they are ferns, you should see some sporophytic leaves eventually coming out of the center. Please update when you can.

That still doesn't surprise me. The immature ferns I had stayed in that state for longer than that. It could be a mature fern but I just don't think so. Are these in a viv? Have you tried moving them out into a pot?

It never hurts to try a few. The small ones I had just didn;t do much until I potted them up.

The ferns I pictured have not really gotten any bigger than that.... by no means am I assuming they are full grown, but for whatever reason, they have not really gone past that "stage". Who knows what they actually are, since the spores travelled in on ABG cuttings :lol: The only spores to make it into a tank quickly got shaded over by pothos.

Harry already posted this Ficus sp. (possibly villosa but not sure on ID) but I just wanted to post another picture, because this thing is hairy.

WOW! What is the size of that begonia? Do you have other pics that might show more of the plant?

I don't know if I should drool too much since I can't keep the Lita begonia going

I'm with KeroKero on this begonia--is the leaf really that shiny? Gorgeous -- I love it!

I'm not sure if it's shiney/waxy as much as reflective... I've noticed a ton of begonias have that fine crystalline structure on their surface which I think is what is going on here...

Glad you 2 like it. The largest leaf I have seen on it so far is about 3.5". In higher light, the leaves stay under 3". I guess because of the shape of the leaf it still looks dainty. I know what Corey means about the crystalline texture causing the shine. And this begonia definitely has some of that. But, it also seems a touch waxy to me. Either way, with a little light it looks shiny
Sorry Corey, I took this picture last night as I was cutting apart my one mother plant. There is a picture on-line of someones overgrown plant in a bowl that might give you an idea. It can look a little messy, but I think with proper placement, it should make a very nice terrarium specimen. I divided my plant, so that I can experiment in more tanks.

Ok, so I found the overgrown plant pic... It looks like it might be a bit of a trailer? Grows up, gets heavy, falls over, roots? It could be a really interesting addition to the 65g I'm plotting out in my head, especially if it rambles. The idea is stream side boulders with lots of growth and rambling going on... mainly with the green and maroon/red plants (no crazy blue, pink, etc stuff). I'll add this plant to the possibilities list!

I think the growing habit could be something like that. Or even growing on a rock and attaching itself at several points or even jutting out. It throws new growths from the base so I can imaging a pretty plant in time. It might work great as you picture it, although with the long tapered leaves, on top of the boulders might be the nicest spot.

The idea would be that they'd be rocks with epiphytic/lithophytic type clumps of plants growing on the rocks, as well as the background. The begonia would have a chance to grow both up and slightly rambling for most of the places I put it. Interspersed and repeated a couple times in the tank with some other foliage plants... the leaf shape is just awesome. I'm just getting all excited now!

Dammit Harry, my wanted list from you is long enough! Then you have to toss in another begonia I might like? This is getty crazy... I think I just need to drive over to your place and raid it :evil:

Pretty impressive... I've not seen or heard of these two species begonias before (and I'm sure plenty others). I think they beat out the rexes My google searches of course have lead to me other really interesting Begonia species pictures that make me just dream.

Fully agree Harry. One of the best plants one can have in a terrarium in my opinion.

Well grown plant Harry, esp. for such a temperamental species.
I just cut apart my plant of B. chlorosticta last night too (I was on a begonia propagating tear. lol)
So, this is just a picture of a cutting. Still, I was wondering if our plants are of 2 different forms or just different growing conditions? Even in lower light, mine always has the red ribbing. There is supposed to be a "brown" chlorosticta out there. Do you know much about yours?
Corey, there are a lot of beautiful hard to find ones out there!

This is not the brown form. It is also just recovering from low light so that may be the reason for the lack of red. I have had the brown form and it was AWESOME but rotted quickly. I will be trying to get another bit of it this spring.

I have tried growing the green form outside of a terrarium with no luck. It's picky and rots easy even in good conditions.

I think the great thing about most of these is that they need little or no air movement. The best grower I know has them in completely enclosed terrariums for months on end. He grows fabulous plants but alas does not sell them.

Ooo, nice B. limprichtii Harry. I thought people might like to see a close up of that beautiful species. I think the pinkish-purple hairs are so amusing. BTW, is that B. pavonina to the right of the limprichtii? Do you have a picture of that species?

okay, my last begonia for today. This is an unidentified one from Peru. It's a cane type and can get tall, but still it's very useful and pretty in the terrarium.

I did at one time have a cutting of that species but it never took. I'm not really sure what that was to the right of limprichtii.

This is one of my favvorite cane types. I think it's Begonia maculata but I'm not positive.

Beautiful plant. But, I can see why you are not positive it's B. maculata.
I like it better than the maculatas that are available.
