    Default Good ground cover needed


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Besides sphagnum moss, cork bark pieces, and magnolia leaves, what plants work well for ground cover? My geckos get UVB and LED lights, the white LEDs get switched to blue for a few hours in the evening. My sanseveria's are alive but not growing much (which is fine), and the pothos is going great guns. But I would like some good small ground cover as well.

    This may not help you much, but I've about given up on good ground cover. I've tried spike moss, baby tears, creeping Jenny, creeping fig- all could work, but not having much of a green thumb myself- don't.
    Leaves and bark get the job done, and once the pothos and wandering jew fill in, it all looks pretty good.

    I may end up just doing as you did - use pothos and keep my sanseveria, if it continues to live, and just use cork, leaves, and sphagnum moss as substrate. As long as it keeps the clean-up crew going, that's all they need.
