5 Pack Live Partridge Berry Vines Mitchella Repens for Terrariums

Regular price $4.29

Beautiful partridge berry vines. They look stunning in terrariums and pots. This strain is very suitable for terrariums because it tends to grow smaller in relation to its cousin. It tends to like the same soil as moss and usually grows in higher air quality areas.

This order will be for 5 live bare root vines. These usually take off quickly in terrariums and shade gardens.  The partridge berry plants have red berries at random every year.  This plant is considered an evergreen so they do spread year after year.         


These do not require any special planting. Simply place on top of your soil and mist with a spring water (or non-chlorinated) every few days. These do best when kept out of direct sunlight, especially during the hotter hours of the day.  Clean air is essential for these to live. They will not thrive in a smoky or contaminated environment.  Also note that these grow at a very slow rate, most only 1/4-1/2" per year, if that. 



Keep moss damp. Moisten every 3-5 days if inside.  Avoid full direct sun for more than 6 hours. Cooler morning sun provides the best results, with shade in the heat of the day.

Tip: Rain water can be caught in a vessel and put into a NEW CLEAN spray bottle for natural watering.


Succulent Care

Succulents do best in well-drained soil. The addition of grit or sharp sand will improve porosity & drainage.  After planting, water once a week. New plants should be well established in 5-6 weeks.

Visit the Cactus Succulent Society for very detailed care information. A great resource!


Mini-Terrarium Instructions

Place a small clump of moss in container first, then place the smaller lichen as preferred to fill in or add detail. Tweezers or a skewer can be helpful in placing and arranging. Water well then add a few drops of spring water (or non-chlorinated) every few days.


Seedling Care

Depending on the time of year, your seedlings may or may not have leaves. Care of the roots is most important at this time, keep them moist until time for planting.
