    Is C. rhombifolia my "new ivy"? This place never labels their stuff other than " 2inch terrarium plants $2.99/4 inch $4.99 " even though they propagate it all I don't think they know what it is cos I've asked and they say emphatically, "it's a terrarium plant!"

    The plant with the caudex and two leaves is another ant plant, Hydnophytum simplex, it got chowed by a caterpillar in august or so but is coming back.

    HEH Thez, I'm doing it backwards, I used to have a house full of just Nep chambers! LOL

    Then for a couple years all i had was succulents but eventually I started having sinus problems so I put it down to the material I potted them in and their constant blooming. I had species from all over the world so one type would quit and another would kick in blooming as the seasons changed. Now I just have a small tray of half a dozen or so of my fave succulents and I can breathe again without a windy pollen filled shelf full of dusty dry succulent pots!

    If I had a whole house to work with instead of just an apt with an unfortunate amount of windows, I'm sure I'd start collecting the non-neps with a vengeance! I can't help it...I just love plants!

    Me too thez!

    Swords, I'm referring to the biggest one in the botton left-hand corner, I'm not sure if it's really an ivy, but it does kind of resemble one, maybe if you do a google search on it?

    I was only guessing it as an Ivy of some kind since it was not labeled (nor are the others) but I think you're right on that's what it is. This site here says it's sort of rare too: http://www.rhapisgardens.com/cissus/

    I already have Cissus amazonica growing like mad being periodically wound around a long branch in my Vampire crab tank, it's a really great terrarium plant and looks like a vine of miniature Alocasia leaves.

    I'm hoping to get the colorful Cissus discolor someday, the "Begonia Vine" probably the most dramatic leaves of them all I think.

    Cool, that's what I'll put on my label.

    I'm going to repot a lot of my houseplants tonight (including these new ones) cos they need it and I just got a huge 2.2 cu ft bag of miracle grow potting soil (I like it for generic houseplants) for $3 at walmart (normally $10). No sense letting it get stale in the bag!
