THIS PLANT IS ON C.I.T.E.S. AND CANNOT BE EXPORTED

A decorative species of Brazil’s Atlantic Forest and Paraguay and is reportedly no longer found in the wild. That would seem rather odd except that there are many other plant species found only in small populations and could easily be wiped out by agriculture or development. A shrub-like, epiphytic species with arching stems that are cylindrical but deeply incised, showing five ribs. The flowers are white to slightly pinkish and the fruit pink. Our clone came from the collection of the Marie Selby Botanical Garden with an accession code of SEL77-2040.
