General Information and Care: Pleopeltis percussa is another stunning miniature terrarium fern that Glass Box Tropicals offers. This species is relatively new to the US hobby and is not yet widely distributed. It has a gorgeous rhizome covered in white pubescence. The leaves are bright green with some dark green venation. Also, the rhizome do like to wander, but regularly put out leaves leaving very few long spances of empty rhizome like some Microgrammas and others tend to do. This fern seems to do best when mounted epiphytically and given ample moisture and bright light.
