This is a rarely offered and unusual tropical plant for collectors. The pinkish white waxy flowers are weirdly pretty and look like plastic or porcelain. It also has attractive thick succulent leaves and it puts out air roots that often bypass the soil.
Very interesting potted plant for filtered bright light. The remarkable flowers can appear anytime during the year. The plant does not form a root ball like most plants, but instead will produce air roots that come from up in the branches and can reach the floor, totally bypassing the pot. Freezing temperatures should be avoided.
5 to 8′ on average at maturity but can be kept smaller in container
partial sun to filtered light
protect from a freeze
very unusual flowers that bloom when plant is young, can be seen most of the year, and the buds are unusual too
Very rarely offered.
Ships in 4” pot.
