I love having these guys in my tanks, my only problem is the size they grow to, usually 1.5-2 feet for the smaller kinds (some of the larger kinds have leaves 3+ ft). Be warned it will probibly out grow your tank depending on the type!

Anthurium scandens


Anthurium scandens is a great aroid for dart frog habitats. Like most plants of the genus, it is epiphytic but can be grown terrestrially in a loose mix. The big plus about this one is its size. Unlike most anthuriums, it is very small and probably the smallest available commercially. As its name implies, this particular species grows in a scandant, vining fashion and is best noted for its interesting fruit rather than its unintersting inflorescence. The leaves also make great climbing areas for the frogs and seem to be a preferred egg deposition site for many species. It does not grow too quickly yet can be cut back occasionally to control ist growth and the cuttings are easy to propagate. Can be grown in as small as a 10 gallon vivarium.
