Persicaria microcephala is a shrub native to China that has dramatic foliage. It can get 24 inches tall but is easily trimmed. It is adaptable to the vivarium life, and does well in moist, but not wet, conditions. It enjoys high light and does not like standing water on its leaves. It is easily propagated in sphagnum moss.
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.
