We offer terrarium plants loose, potted, tissue-cultured, and in tubes. Tropical waters and wetland bogs are biodiverse environments where plants play a key role in sustaining ecosystems that feature impressive fish, reptiles, amphibians, and more. No less remarkable than the fauna is the plants in these environments which encompass many types from surface-covering vegetation to submerged oxygenators. At Complete Aquatic Systems, we cultivate plants for tropical and bog vivariums (a.k.a. paludariums).

Leaves mature to arrow shape. Later leaves become pedate (to 14” long), each with 5-11 leaflets. Tiny green to greenish-white flowers on a spadix are surrounded by a greenish-white spathe (to 4.5” long). A very hearty plant that is excellent for use in humid environments.
