I bought this in a teeny pot a few weeks back and it is growing well in a grow out viv. I think it will work in a gecko viv, seems to like damp. What the heck is it?
can you finish the plant name lol lot's come up when I Google Pilea sp.Beth, that is Pilea sp. -- has been ID'd before for me as Pilea depressa, but from some research I think that the name was changed at one point. Most people commonly call it baby tears as well. Does FANTASTIC in vivs!
I was propagating it for a while, but it is just too much of a headache because of how fast I can grow it. I literally left one of my larger portions sitting in a dry propagation tray for 2 weeks, and in that time it rooted to everything it was touching and continued growing. Whatever you give it to climb, it roots fast and will start to grow. Definitely a great terrarium plant though, leaves stay small, spreads pretty evenly and is sturdy enough that even large frogs (adult Matecho and Azureus) dont really seem to do any damage when they tromp through it like some of the other more fragile Pilea and Peperomia species.Thank you, Rizman! It grows fast as stays nice and green! I will maybe start a couple of extra clippings, as I really like the scale of the leaves for a vivarium.
