Ardisia mamillata ‘Green’


This variable species occurs in China and has at least two color forms that look drastically different.  There is the green one, pictured in the main photo, and a pink one as in the last two photos.  The growth habit is similar but the pink one seems to have more upright new growth, whereas the green one produces new growth that faces toward the ground.  This species can grow to over a foot tall but often stay smaller.  It is covered in fuzzy hairs and produces fruits that turn from cream to red as they ripen.  It is an excellent terrarium plant, that does well in shady to somewhat bright light.

Available plants are the green type, rooted, and stand about 3″ tall.  They have at least four leaves and are well rooted in 2″ pots.
