General Information and Care: Pellionia repens is one of the more uniquely colored plants that Glass Box Tropicals offers. Depending on the growing conditions and light intensity, the leaf coloration can vary from dark purple to dark green to light green to an almost red. Additionally, leaf size can also vary from 1" to 3". In terrariums, it will generally stay on the smaller end of that spectrum with leaves generally in the 1-2" length range. Pellionia is a great plant that is easy to grow and is a great choice for a vining plant!
