Default Plants of Central and South America List

This is a list I made up over the last couple months that I thought would be useful to everyone on the forums. It took me a lot of long nights to finish it but I think it will help when selecting plants for the dart terrarium.

Default Re: Plants of Central and South America List

Thanks! Its funny, I originally was just going to do the species I kept and a few others but the list just kept growing! I wanted to get in most of the Neotropical species that are currently being grown in the USA (private and public collections). I think it is around 500 or so species; it should be pretty accurate since its based off of collections data.

After I recover I may add orchids and bromos but that was tjust oo much for now, have you seen the orchid list just for Ecuador?!!!

Default Re: Plants of Central and South America List

Excellent work, Josh, you are to be commended! I have a few of those plants and I'm happy to know where they are from now. I am pretty excited to find out more about the other (most of them) plants too; many I've never heard of before. Time to do some Googling. Maybe one day I will attempt a truly biotopic tank (plants and frogs) now that there is a list. All we need now is to narrow it down to the plants that are tank-sized and available for purchase. Thanks for taking the time to make the list.

Cheers,
Mike

As I have been looking for just such a list...

I have both of these great lists semi-sorted into Excel.
Hoping to get more data to add, but I've got if if anyone wants it.
I wont post it here unless the OPs approve...its their data and research, not mine.

I just popped them into Excel

Frogparty~ great list of orchids! Thanks!

I may eventually put them into the master list and the bromos too. Most of the species I listed can be grown in terrariums with exception of some of the larger aroids like Anthurium and Philos. For that reason, most of the species that I left out of the list were too big to be useful anyway.

Wish I could have put more in there as far as pleurothallids and the like, most of my orchid books kind of skimp out on those. My favs like restrepia brachypus and pleurothallis allenii and microphylla aern't in any of my books. Figured as well that things like cattleyas and phragmepediums aern't usually terrarium suitable, so I left those out as well

Jason-What books are you using? I usualy run all species through the Tropicos database to check localities, and Andy's Orchids is pretty useful too.

Also wanted to say thanks to Harry for helping out with the list! The plant dump of yours is very useful......

This is a very useful guide. It would be awesome to make this a work-in-progress and include other notes such as terrestrial or epiphyte or even if it is recommended for a terrarium.

Thanks again!

Great list Josh - thanks again for taking the time to put it together!

I was just wondering if the PDF version is available?

Do you do your own web design - it looks awesome!

So just to make sure, are all (or most) of these safe for vivarium use? I've been trying to find a list of plants that will be safe for use with darts.

All should be safe, there isn't anything to spiny on there, etc. A lot of the anthuriums and philos will get huge though. It includes plants that can be used in tiny tanks as well as ones for full institutional displays and greenhouses.

Yeah I wasn't so much concerned with size as much as safety of the darts. It's a lot easier to figure out sizes than how compatible they are with animals haha.
