Smallest Marcgravia?
 
I'm having a hard time figuring out the sizes of the different Marcgravia species. Umbellata looks in pictures like it gets quite large in the wild, but does it stay manageable in a vivarium? Looking for something pretty small and slow-growing for my 60g tank...

Umbellata is my smallest species. Also, Marcgravia in vivaria rarely gets mature foliage like you might be seeing in pictures from the wild (especially if you see any flowers in the pictures). Some of the other rarer Marcgravia stay pretty small, too, in my experience. Sintenisii (sp?) and Rectiflora can get pretty big leaves on them. And Umbellata sure fits the slow-growing bill, too...

There's a species referred to as "small round." It's the smallest one I've seen, pretty tiny. Glass Box Tropicals offers them.

Re: Smallest Marcgravia?
 
Good point. I have that and you are right, the leaves are smaller. That one actually throws two different kinds of leaves for me, though, and the older kind of leaves (still not like the mature foliage it would have in the wild, I think) is a little bit bigger than Umbellata. But Round Leaf is certainly an option. Good thinking, Steven.

I'd love to see a photo of the different types of leaves!

I will see if there are any in there right now. I harvested not too long ago :-)

I got it from glass box tropicals and thatís their label. If you look online Iíve seen pictures of Mendez that look just like what I got so Iím not sure if the leaves can get a more spaced structure under different conditions. Either way it is a really nice plant.

Agreed! Hard to tell the difference a lot of the time. I plan on getting some soon :)

Rectiflora suriname is pretty small, and ironically one of the cheapest and most plentiful in the hobby.
Marcgravia sp. small round is very small.

I got some M Suriname when I got the Mendez and while small it is still twice the size

That is not the one known as Margravia rectiflora suriname that I am refering too, confusing but they are different, the one you have is also not as common or as cheap. But it has more unique foliage.

Ah ok, the M Suriname at glassbox is actually not that expensive (same price as M rectiflora) the Mendez on the other hand was a little pricy.

I see there is a sale on it, maybe this newer suriname is also very fast growing.
