The "Ant Plant" is a highly sought-after rare plant that is an interesting and unusual plant. Don't worry, this one contains no ants, however, these plants evolved to live symbiotically with ants.

The swollen base or "caudex" of the plant would house the ants and derive fertilization from the ant's waste product. Meanwhile, the ants would also have a home inside the smooth skinned base that is riddled with caverns and tunnels for the ants to call home. 

The caudex will continue to grow and get larger and larger as this plant continues to mature, they do like high humidity, good drainage, and bright light so they are great in a terrarium. 

    If your plant needs added humidity our Plant Mister would make a perfect addition to your plant shelf for both function and beauty.
