The plants are growing really well under vivarium conditions. The Aeschynanthus has been pinched back and pushed to the rear, and is now in bud again. The Alocasia 'Black Velvet' has shed all the older, smaller leaves (grown during quarantine outside the tank) and has grown BIG sturdy new leaves with much shorter petioles. A small Asplenium nidus sits below it to help hide the Alocasia's pot.  All these plants mean that even with bright lighting, the frogs aren't afraid to come out because they have enough shelter to feel secure. Unfortunately, they still aren't secure enough to come out when there's a camcorder sitting in front of the vivarium!
