, , , , , ,

Grows from a thick rhizome that creeps over logs and rocks attaching itself as it goes. When new plantlets form on old leaves you can remove them, when they are large enough (about 3″) and attach them to new places with rubber bands or fine fishing line until they take root. Very easy to grow…does not need much light.
