Just buy it :)

You definitely will not regret it. This company is amazing from the quality and selection of plants, to the lightening speed shipping, to the immaculate packaging. They are top notch and when you see a item in stock, you better snag it as they sell out FAST!! Lots of companies these days lack customer service and generally leave the customer in the dark. At Josh’s frogs they are on top of the game and their customer service is top notch. It says alot about the business and the owners. They actually CARE ..

does so well with frogs too!

This thing loves the 100% humidity and the moist soil! It can handle frogs well, and loves crawling all over good sized pieces of wood in the tank. Gives a great jungle appearance as it vines around anything!

Beautiful Plant!

I received a very healthy Monstera Siltepecana from Josh's Frogs. The first thing I did was place a moss pole in the pot that I made from a stick and tied the vine to it. It's been two weeks and I've already seen plenty of new growth. I am extremely satisfied with this purchase. Thank you so much!

Beautiful and healthy!

I bought this plant two months ago and it has thrived and put out new leaves quickly. It handled transit like it didn't even happen and has been one of my all time favorite plants.
