a hardy and attractive plant

I planted this both in soggy and well-drained soil and both sections seem to be doing quite well, looking healthy and attractive, and already adding new growth. I highly recommend these for a dart frog vivarium! :)

Pilea plant

I got this plant because of the emails sent from Josh's. The plant arrived nicely wrapped and after a cleaning and placing it outside on my deck greenhouse it exploded into growth. I would assume it will do the same thing in my vivariums.

So far so good

Just revived this plant and it seems to be acclimating well. Arrived nicely packaged and ready to plant.

Fragile, but held up during shipping

This tiny guy lost a few leaves, but was so well packed, it wasn't bad at overall. Doesn't seem to be flourishing too much, but that could be my lack of experience with this plant.
