Pearcea hypocyrtiflora ‘Green’

This is the green form of this Pearcea, not often seen, and it seems to be quite a bit slower and less vigorous than the standard form. I received one very small plant years ago and just this year do I have plants available. I have not yet seen the flower, but suspect it’s the same bulbous orange blooms as the standard type. The leaves can reach 6″ but it often stays around 4-5″ in the terrarium. The foliage is large enough to withstand trampling by the larger dart frog species.
