Description:
An evergreen aerial rooting climbing species we were surprised to find in Monte Verde cloud forest in northern Costa Rica in the autumn of 2004. With dark green glossy foliage to 15 cm long held on pubescent young branches, bearing inflorescences without sterile florets. We were fortunate to obtain permission from the cloud forest conservation area, as we were primarily looking for Maianthemum. We were also fortunate in finding seedlings of this species as there was no sign of seed. 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.
