This "Ant Plant" is an unusual epiphytic vine belonging to the milkweed family. It grows small hollow "pods" that have roots inside. In nature, ants use these pods to live in, bringing with them food debris which in turn feeds the plant nourishment. Has tiny red flowers. Can be grown in moist sphagnum moss on the back wall of your terrarium. 

Current plants available are small and young and do not have their famous hollow "pods" developed yet. The plant is shipped as an unrooted cutting on damp sphagnum moss in an 8 oz. covered deli cup. Because the available plants are young, they desire high humidity however once older and well rooted, they can acclimate to conditions outside of a terrarium.

NOTE: If you do not have experience with unrooted cutting material, we suggest you pass on this. Rooting the cuttings under high humidity on damp sphagnum is not difficult but may present itself as a challenge for some.
