What is this plant called ?

Although I don't have a great memory, i'm lucky that most names for plants stick. Its useful, not because of the names themselves, but because it unlocks a deeper set of information, out there on the world wide web. With the name of a plant you can search with the words 'natural habitat' as I do, and find for example that Peperomia Pepperspot, pictured below, is native to the Amazon, where it is warm and shady. The understory of a rainforest tends to get low light.

The list below is all of the plants that I think were included in this week's events. I may have missed one or two however, so if you have something you don't recognise, please send me a picture. Also, I love to get photo's of updates, terrarium settling in pictures, new leaf pictures. Please send any comments or questions to

Remember, I am available for private bookings, planting terrariums in groups, work events or one to one. Let me know.
