  1. Pepperomia sp 1 w fungi

    This Pepperomia species was growing on a log about 3' off the ground and is quite common in appropriate habitat. It ought to be an excellent terrarium inhabitant.
  2. Pepperomia sp 2

    A second Pepperomia species that is common in the Peruvian Amazon (and there are probably many more species that I haven't taken the time to properly distinguish!)
  3. Geophila repens

    Geophila repens is a ground-hugging member of the coffee family. It can form large patches on the forest floor in areas where too much leaf-litter doesn't accumulate, including on fairly well-traveled trails, so it can handle some physical damage without much problem. Leaves are ~1/2" in diameter.
  4. Psygmorchis pusilla

    Fast growing "twig orchids" which can be abundant in high light levels, and is often found on guava tree twigs in pastures. This one was growing on a palm frond base and is probably about one year old. The fan of leaves might reach about 4" across in a large plant.
  5. Psygmorchis pusilla

    Another view of this hardy dwarf orchid. On suitable host trees, there may be dozens or even hundreds of Psygmorchis plants.
  6. Orchid sp-unknown genus

    I've run into these just a few times in Peru - the leaves are fleshy and the flowers are waxy, fragrant and long-lasting. This species appears to like drier and brighter conditions.
  7. Orchid sp-unknown genus

    A closer look at the attractive flowers of this species (if anyone can put an ID on it, please let me know!)
  8. Costus erythrophyllus

    Costus erythrophyllus - dark green upper leaf surface with a purple-red undersurface. grows up to ~3' in height, but plants can likely be kept small in terraria by cutting out canes that grow too large. New (smaller) canes will be produced by the plant base.
  9. Brassia cf. verrucosa

    Brassia cf. verrucosa - these orchids bloom frequently and like higher light levels with a bit of light shade. They are common around clearings and plants from branch and tree-falls can be placed at eye level and quickly attach.
  10. Brassia cf. verrucosa

    A closer view of the Brassia cf. verrucosa flower
  11. Epidendrum cf. nocturnum

    A very common Epidendrum in the Peruvian Amazon and one that does well in higher light situations (but with some light shade). Plants will want to be mounted (not potted) and should be allowed to dry out between waterings/misting.
  12. Member's Frogs & Vivariums
    Today I'd like to share with you my (nota bene) pet project - a biotope vivarium inspired by the Loreto region in Peru. All non-moss, non-algae plants, and vertebrate inhabitants, were demonstrated within the borders of the region. Sadly, it's not possible to realistically recreate a piece of...
  13. Plants
    I am planning to build a Peru biotope tank that houses 2 imitators. I have already found some nice ferns orchids and creepers that grow in Peru. But so far the only bromeliad that I found is the neoregelia tarapotensis. I wonder if you guys can help me find some more bromeliads that grow in...
