General Information and Care: Microgramma sp. Ecuador - reptans is an interesting species in this Genus. It came as an unidentified species, though several collectors have agreed that it is most likely a clone of M. reptans. However, we have yet to get any fronds with spores so we do not have a definite identification for it as of yet. This is one of the easiest growing of this Genus though, and can easily cover driftwood giving it an extremely naturalistic appearance. As with most other Microgrammas, this species prefers bright indirect light, and medium to high moisture. In our experience, this species grows the quickest when given higher moisture level and higher light levels. As you can see in the macro photos, this species has tons of interest with the variety of leaf colors and the amazing pubescents on the leaf surfaces!
