Alsobia dianthiflora ‘Lace Flower’, also known as the Lace Flower Vine is a member of the Gesneriad family originally native from Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru and Brazil.  Prized for its unique blooms with lacy, shredded petal edges, this small vining plant does great in a hanging basket, tall pots, or also adapts indoors as a house plant in bright light where it will produce many long stolons/vines that will trail and hang over.  These vines can grow up to 3 feet long with the plant reaching about 8”.  As with most Gesneriads, it should be watered at the base to avoid standing water on its fuzzy leaves or blossoms.  Overall, this plant has gained its popularity due to its steady production of blooms and ease of care.


USDA Hardiness Zones 9-10


Container Gardens/Terrariums/Houseplant:

Due to the reasons above, this plant is a popular house plant that can add color to your home via both its unique blossoms and small, fuzzy green.  This plant is quite easy to care for, and, just like the African Violet, does not appreciate standing water on its leaves.  It can also do well in a container garden and can be pruned if it gets too long.  They are a good candidate for an outdoor hanging basket on a patio.  Due to their small foliage, they are choice in container gardening.


Josh's Frogs offers a wide variety of glass terrariums, container garden soils, drainage layers and other supplies for all of your indoor gardening needs.


Vivariums/Animal Terrariums:

With its tolerance of moisture and frequent blossoms, this plant is very popular in the vivarium hobby.  It is one of the few plants that can be kept in vivariums that will continually blossom.  It is important to note that water does not stand on the leaves for long periods of time, but it will appreciate the high humidity of a fine misting.


As good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants from Josh's Frogs are treated only with products that are OMRI Listed© for use in organic production. Live plants may vary in color, size and appearance.




The plant pictured is in a 2.5" pot.

nice tiny plants Review by pclay
Plants arrived quickly, in good shape. They look healthy and leaves are a deep green, but plants are smaller than I expected. I repotted them right away. They still look good, but it's too soon to really review. (Posted on 7/21/2016)
