Description: An evergreen aerial rooting climbing species we found in the Cocora Valley in the Cordillera Central, Colombia in 2004. Where access was only on horseback, due to the deep mud in so many places. With dark green glossy foliage to 20 cm long held on pubescent young branches, bearing inflorescences of pink flowers with sterile florets, reputedly very showy in countries such as Costa Rica. We found it growing in dense forest, with no sign of seed even high in the trees, hence we were fortunate to be able to collect seedlings from some large boulders. Perfectly capable of climbing some of the tallest trees there, we usually find that they just fill the space given then start to flower. Not tried for hardiness, but best grown in shelter from frost in good light.
