The right side of the vivarium is dominated by terrestrial
plants surrounding the waterfall. In the back right corner are a miniature
Spathiphyllum which is just barely visible here, and a Stromanthe (the
one with dark patterns on silvery leaves) which is a type of prayer plant.
Prayer plants are so-called because they fold up their leaves at night,
like hands held in prayer. A Pilea spruceana 'Norfolk' in a pot sits in
the water in the front right corner, where it hides a tube of fruitfly
culture. A halved coconut shell is nestled under all these plants for the
frogs to hide in. There is also a space behind the waterfall that is a
favorite frog hangout, which is why I keep the Alocasia potted to give
me access to that area if necessary. Hanging from the top of the vivarium
are some twigs with orchids growing on them. Their position maximizes the
amount of light they get, to help them bloom. The orchids share the twigs
with some tillandsias.
