Costus tappenbeckianus is an attractive tropical with spiraling green leaves. It creates a thick cane, so it is perfect for frogs and heavier amphibians / reptiles. The glossy leaves are also great laying sites for all types of dart frogs, so we use it very frequently in enclosures!
All of our cuttings have adventitious, aerial roots. Our rooted specimens will have at least a few active roots and will be established plants. Our plants are grown in high humidity in terrariums and greenhouses, therefore may need acclimation to the average home humidity / environment. Please contact us for acclimation information if you are not planning to use this plant in a terrarium, greenhouse, or humid room.
