Narrow leathery arrow leaves, with unequal basal lobes, are magenta to maroon beneath; very handsome slowly scandent species with small green spathes enclosing the ruby interior. Mexican species full of drama, soon forming an impressive show as it grows steadily and well, even in a regular house. Looks exotically difficult, while actually easily grown, especially if given a mossed pole to perform on.
Very heavily ordered at this time. Expect a 2-3 month wait for shipment to take place. Do not order if you cannot wait for delivery.
|Cultural Code||HP CGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
