Small Growing Bromeliads

Bromeliads are one of the most unique groups of tropical plants regularly used in naturalistic vivaria. Best known for their ability to hold water (and thus function as rearing sites for poison dart frog tadpoles), most bromeliads are epiphytes, which means they naturally grow without soil. Bromeliads often grow on trees in the wild, and are best mounted on wood or the background in a naturalistic vivarium. Small growing bromeliads will stay under 8", and most will mature at 4"-6".

A wide variety of vivarium-suitable live plants are available at Josh’s Frogs. We take pride in providing only chemical, pesticide, and insecticide free plants for sale which are safe for use with animals. Every plant is different, and Josh’s Frogs provides more specific care needs for every live terrarium plant on it’s product page.

All plants sold by Josh's Frogs are guaranteed to be pesticide and fertilizer free. We grow our plants indoors, away from pests and wild animals that could contaminate plants. Josh's Frogs takes all possible steps to insure that every plant we sell is perfectly safe for use with animals. Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants with dechlorinated room temperature water before planting.
