This plant will develop into a small tree given the right conditions. In the terrarium however it is used mainly in tall set ups for arboreal animals. It is especially useful for chameleons as the branches are nice and strong and so are suitable for them to climb on. Grow in good light, with moderate humidity and an evenly moist soil. Low humidity and drought conditions will cause the leaves to drop and although they will grow back it makes the plant unattractive.
