Pot Size: 20 litre
Description: A baffling species which is lumped in with O. xalapensis by some authorities. However in our experience it differs considerably with narrower leaflets to the compound Schefflera-like leaves which can have as many as 12 leaflets held on long red petioles that tend to change colour with the flowering season. Also the terminal spike or raceme has both male and female flowers within the same umbel, with conspicuous male flowers with long filaments, even hermaphrodite flowers on some. Originating from one of our collections from a high altitude forest near Quetzaltenango (Xela). Luckily we had a licence to import them. Whereas the mother plants were forming small well branched trees 4-5m tall. Only hardy to a few degrees of frost. Best grown in good light, but is shade tolerant in a hot area.
