A collection choice ferns and foliage plants designed for terrariums. This beautiful assortment contains miniature foliage plants, from Peperomia, to miniature palms, Begonias, Fittonia, and more and ferns and Selaginellas such as Birdnest types, Maidenhairs, Pteris, Button, Heart and many more in two inch pots.
These are just right for planting in terrariums, dish gardens or moving up to larger pots. Chosen for variety and suitability to the terrarium environment, they are nice and full for their pot size. We normally have about twenty varieties from which the collections are made up.
Unless we are unable avoid it, each collection is a balance of equal numbers of ferns and foliage plants. To keep prices low, these plants are not supplied with name labels and are strictly ‘grower’s choice’ assortments. Available singly and in assortments of 5 and 10 and full cases.
An unusual and pretty Brazilian species with a compact, somewhat bulbous base, upright leaves and a lovely red and white spike. This species is stoloniferous and grows well mounted as well as potted. Good in terrariums
Asplenium nidus 'Chrissy'
A crested birdnest fern. This is a fantastic, crested form of this widely distributed tropical Asian fern. Growing to 30 inches across in some cases, with wide, apple-green fronds with a prominent midrib that becomes darker, almost black, in older plants.
This form has crested leaves that end in deeply cut, finger like serrations. Outstandingly decorative and versatile as a garden subject, houseplant or terrarium plant. A choice new variety.
Neoregelia 'Rio Ocher' x olens 'Vulcan'
An as yet unnamed cross of Neoregelia ‘Rio Ocher’ x olens ‘Vulcan’ is an apple green plant with a vivid red center flush at anthesis. The inch and a half wide leaves are somewhat thick and leathery and the marginal spines are small. It develops some red cross-banding on the leaves which become more pronounced with strong light or when grown “harder”. Offsets are on short stolons and the plant is good for mounting and for terrarium use.
Neoregelia ('Fairy Paint' x sarmentosa) x chlorosticta
A small grower to about 6 inches tall, with red leaves that are suffused with yellow-green dots, concentrating in the center. Makes a good terrarium plant.
Neoregelia compacta 'Small Form'
An excellent smaller-growing-than-usual form of Neo compacta. The plants are ideally suited to growing in baskets or for mounting, quickly forming showy clusters with their stout stolons. Foliage is compact, light green, spineless and develops a deep red center flush when blooming. Ideal for terrariums.
