Best ground cover plant!

It's spreading all over my vivarium and is super easy to transplant baby plantlets into our other viv's so it's really worth the money! Our baby dart's love it especially!

Arrived Green and Full of New Growth

I got one of these in my first order from Josh's Frogs. When it arrived it was alive and had lots of green leaves and smaller, new points of leaf growth. It was also big enough to where I was able to split the plant into two different plants which are now growing in two different vivariums.
