Default What have you got in foliage?

Since there is such a successful thread dealing with flowers, I thought a thread on foliage would be great too. Since flowers are so fleeting, a lot of the look of the vivarium relies more on the shape, color and patterns of the plants themselves. Hopefully, this will be a successful thread.

Here's one to start. The Brazilian Philodendron 'Burle-Marx Fantasy' has always been one of my favorite philos for the terrarium. It has very nice color and pattern and the leaves remain relatively small. Several cuttings grown together will make a great shingle effect. Depending on the intensity of the light, the leaf color can range from green to blue to even slightly purple. On top of that it has some nice intricate markings. It is actually a species that has never been formally named. Supposedly rare in the wild and it is not very common in cultivation too.

I think this species of Peperomia or Piper is very interesting. As well as the unknown to the right, which I just lost.

Dischidia astephana is a highland endemic to Malaysia and Borneo...



I've never tried it in a viv but it should do well in bright spot that dries out a tad every now and then.

D. ovata comes from Indonesia and Australia. There is also one from the Philippines I believe...



Lepanthes calodictyon (spelling may not be right). This was a great plant until I killed it...



I suppose I could post about 45 billion bromeliad photos but I will refrain since we already have a "Post your best brom" thread.

I know this one has been posted but it deserves to be on this thread for sure. It's a Ficus (I mistakenly typed Piper since that was once what it was thought to be) I believe and some think it may be villosa although I'm sure I agree.

Not enough air flow. The thing bloomed and then rotted. At least I got the show!

Harry, I think you mean Ficus.

Wow, this is doing well. Nice pictures everyone. L. calodictyon is definitely one of my favorites.

Here's a little begonia from Lita Ecuador. It might be B. maurandiae or
B. secunda. If not, I'm sure it is related to those. The "big" leaves in the photo are a little over an inch. Combined with the growing habit and crystalline texture, it is one of my favorite begonias.

it can be temperamental, but once you get it established it takes care of itself. You should try again. . I've had it for over a decade now and I don't pay much attention to it's needs. I just enjoy it.

I don't think it will be possible to really appreciate this plant by looking at a photo, but here's one anyway. :lol: This is Algaonema picta Tricolor. All the leaves come out with varying degrees of blacklish green, silver/grey, bright green and chatreuse. I know that's four colors...lol. In the terrarium, it looks like a small colorful Dieffenbachia.

Monstera frederichsthalii

It was a little slow-growing at first but once it settled in, it started to do great.

Another vote for the 'Burle-Marx Fantasy', the foliage is just great.

Here are some others I like..

Episcia sp.



Begonia rajah



Syngonium sp. pink with green rim:



Syngonium erythrophyllum (just a simple dark green but the deep purple red underside is great):

Hey Mike,
I'm not normally a fan of Episcias, but that's a pretty one. Also, I have been growing rajah for a long time but, I've never had such a big leaf on mine. Your plant must be happy!

I have a plant that I keep labelled as Syngonium sp. Llano-Carti road. It is very similar looking to your S. erythrophyllum, but in comparison mine always seems a little bigger and darker colored than that species. Could be mine is just a different plant of the same species. :?:

Actually, M. Obliqua has larger openings in the leaves and tends to grow low. My obliqua rotted because of that.

Chuck I'm actually not positive on that Syngonium ID so it could be the same as yours for all I know. I just know that it originally came from ABG.

Both of your plants look like Syngonium erythrophyllum to me. I think Chuck's plant just may have some different cultural influence or is another clone/collection. Variation within a species!

From my experience there are many forms of obliqua and some are easily confused with frederichsthalii. This one looks more like frederichsthalii to me. I believe both of the Syngoniums are erythrophyllum.

Ooh... a thread I can contribute to! Hopefully I'll be able to post some of these in the flower thread in a few months or so. Both of these do well in acidic to neutral pH and anywhere up to very hard water.

Cryptocoryne wendtii 'green'



Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia



(so far I've had better luck with the second one submersed, hopefully once this plant adapts (I've only had it for a month) hopefully I'll get a few more pink leaves on it.)

Both will do great in soggy substrates and high humidity so if all else rots... :wink:

This is a great thread
Though I love flowers too, I always find myself more attracted to foliage/fronds' shape, color, texture, patterns etc
Here's some of my favorites. Some are already in vivs and some not (house plants)

What's the one just above it in your original post? That is one gnarly looking rhizome.
