General Information and Care: Microgramma reptans is a species that Glass Box Tropicals is very excited to offer after spending several years tracking it down. This is a species that was imported from Europe. It is very similar to Microgramma vacciniifolia in terrarium culture. However the sporulating fronds are quite different. This species also has leaves that are about twice the size of Microgramma vacciniifolia. Even though they are twice the size, they are still quite small at about the size of a dime. To have the best success with this species, it needs to be mounted.
