Perfect low maintenance plant

So easy to care for, grows quickly, and an excellent addition to any space. Perfect to put on a shelf or desk at work. I don't consider myself to be plant savvy whatsoever, but this little beauty is hardy enough to handle just about anything. I absolutely love and highly recommend this plant to everyone from beginner to master horticulturist.


Love this plant

This plant is resilient and stays green. I love it in my ball python terrarium!


Perfect for filling out lower-middle areas of planted terrariums

This is another beautiful and hardy specimen I have recently purchased. It is doing wonderfully under the conditions of my planted terrarium. Looks like it will fill out nicely; great specimen.


Very nice Pacman Frog plant

I've had this hardy plant for a little over a week from Josh's frogs. Arrived in perfect condition! I have it in the back corner of my 20 gal long terrarium, hanging over a piece of half cut cork bark and it already takes up half of the tank. My Pacman frog loves to sit under it and the crickets climb all over it and fall into his mouth!

Josh (not that Josh)


Was not expecting the sheer amount of plant I got for just five bucks. I've been satisfied with every order I've made at Josh's Frogs so far, but this time I was blown away!
