Description: An aerial rooting climbing species we collected from the cloud forest on the high elevation plateau of Cordillera de Talamanca in Costa Rica in the autumn of 2004. Where this distinct species was to be seen climbing up small trees as well as creeping along the ground. With distinct rounded leathery leaves a matt green with conspicuous venation visible on both sides while the undersides are embellished with ginger hairs, as were the petioles and young stems. Meanwhile the white inflorescences were conspicuous with their surrounding sterile florets and gingery stalks. Best grown in a very sheltered warm situation with possibly some protection from frosts. Not tested for hardiness.
