    Question Good Space Fillers For Terrarium

    What are some good plants that can fill space in a terrarium. I'm looking for something that maybe vines out. Any suggestions?

    Miniature orchids. For LL tanks, use phalenopsis and bulbophyllum. For HLs masdevallias.

    Ficus pumila is very easy to grow and vines out like you mention. Peperomias are also nice.

    Not generally if you plan on planting them in the media. As mounts is a better idea.

    Depends on how much you're willing to do to keep the 'filler' in check. Many will very quickly try to take over the entire tank. (Witness Mass's ivy -- though I've always found ivies to be major spider mite magnets ....).

    If you want rampant growth and don't mind "weeding" regularly:
    Selaginella
    ferns
    Ficus pumila

    If you want slower growers:
    bromeliads
    african violets
    some types of orchids

    Really depends on what you want and how much money you consider reasonable.

    I was looking for suggestions too. Philodenrons might work as well.

    Philodendrons can get quite large, I wouldn't use them in anything smaller than a 75G except a select few.
