General Information and Care: Gloxinella lindeniana is a very striking species to add to any terrarium. The foliage is soft to the touch, has amazing color, and flowers readily in terrariums. The leaf surface is a dark green with white veins and the underside is a bright red. The flowers are purple and white. Before they open, the buds almost look like tiny flowers themselves! As this plant grows, do not be afraid to prune. Otherwise it can get a bit leggy. Due to the weaker petioles compared to many of the other plants we offer, we do not recommend using this plant with larger poison dart frogs such as Phyllobates terribilis. Gloxinella lindeniana is a great choice as a terrarium plant because it is tolerant of a wide array of conditions (extremely moist to drying between waterings, and low to high light).
