Burmiesteria sp. Ecuador


This oddball plant from Ecuador is on the temperamental side.  It likes low-medium light and has a beautiful purple leaf underside.  It grows well on a horizontal branch, and with time may even grow up a mostly vertical surface.  So far, it has only reached about 5″ in diameter, but may get larger given time.  The lower leaves are prone to melting, so take care not to overwater.  The more mature foliage has a nice white/green stripe down the middle, and the leaf edges have a subtle pink tint.

The plant available is rooted and growing in a 2″ pot, and will be shipped bare root. The price reflects the difficulty of growing these, as the plant pictured took about two to establish and put out new growth.
