Pleopeltus percussa

Average Rating 4.8 out of 5

Primordial Beauty

Pleopeltus percussa's bold, creeping rhizomes and finely detailed leaves are a welcome addition to most terrariums. It draws the eye, even tucked into the in-between spaces of your design.

a favorite

I have ordered this many many times. Its does so well and actually grows pretty fast. Its just so dainty but rugged.

Love it

Have had this little guy for about one year. Love the vein detail on the leaves. Very easy to care for in a terrarium, had it outside during my Michigan summer. Arrived in beautiful condition and still thriving.

The fuzzy rhizomes give this fern an exotic, almost alien, appearance. Not as petite as I expected based on the photographs, but I quite like it. Grows well in a sealed terrarium and roots easily from cuttings.

One of three plants I ordered for a new terrarium. Mine has really long rhizomes--looks a little bit like a spider

Easy Mini Fern

This is a fantastic mini fern for the terrarium. It's easy takes not special care. It does like to climb so be prepared to prune. I di believe the correct Genus for this is Microgramma and possibly vaccinifolia. Don't miss out on this one!
