Murdannia loriformis 'Bright Star' is a member of the Commelinaceae family of plants and is pretty rare to find for sale. Initially one might think just by looking at this plant that it might be related to Cryptanthus as it does have that look, but it is actually closely related to Spiderwort.
Murdannia loriformis 'Bright Star' works great as a houseplant as it is easy to grow and has a great look. It can grow to about 16" tall and can get just as wide but pruning can keep it under control. It does flower on long, thin spikes but the highlight of this unique plant is not so much the flowers as it is the foliage. The leaves of Murdannia loriformis 'Bright Star' have a soft, leathery texture with a wavy edge. The color is green with a light striping down the center.
Keep in bright, indirect light for best color and water when top one inch of soil becomes dry.
USDA Hardiness Zones 11
Murdannia loriformis 'Bright Star' would make a terrific houseplant as it's unusual and hard to find. It will also do well in a terrarium, but because of its size, it would have to be a larger terrarium.
Josh's Frogs offers a wide variety of glass terrariums, container garden soils, drainage layers and other supplies for all of your indoor gardening needs.
Murdannia loriformis 'Bright Star' can be used in a vivarium or animal terrarium as long as it is not sitting in water. For the best color, provide bright, indirect light.
As good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Plants from Josh’s Frogs are specifically grown to be safe for use with animals. Live plants may vary in color, size and appearance.
