General Information and Care: Solanum cf. evolvulifolium is an interesting vine that is an easy to grow terrarium species. As a young plant, the leaves are small at less than an inch. When they emerge, they have a bright light green venation with some dark green to almost light purple markings. As the leaves mature they get larger, up to about 3" in length and 1" in width.

Shipped Size: Tip cutting with at least 10 leaves.
When I received this cutting I wasn't hopeful that it would do well. Not because the cuttings looked bad but because they were so small and fragile. I was very wrong, one day it just took off and now I am in a race to complete the terrarium I got it for!
