This species can be a bonsai subject in a terrarium and you should plan on routinely pruning it. It is definitely worth the trouble though as the stems get to be a dark red as it matures and will thicken the more it is pruned. The leaves tend to draw many customers to this species. They are a beautiful light green with a dark green edging. Additionally the leaves routinely have red markings near the petiole. This is definitely one of the most unique species that Glass Box Tropicals offers!
