Hardy vine

Very happy with this Creeping Fig. It’s doing very well in the high humidity habitat, and frogs seem to enjoy hiding in its tiny canopy and trailing vines. Seems very tolerant of habitat conditions, and am excited to see it grow.

Beautiful, healthy plant!

Despite the awful weather my plants arrived just fine thanks to Josh's staff. They went out of their way to keep my babies alive. Very nice small leaves, just what I wanted. Josh's is a great source for plants. The prices, quality and service can't be beat.
