This striking Peruvian Columnea has bullate, fuzzy foliage. Grown in low-medium light its leaves hang down in a beautiful pendant fashion. In brighter light, the leaves still hang down, just not as much. The plant can get quite tall in nature (around `18′) but they often stay smaller in terraria. Despite its delicate-looking leaves, this species thrives as a houseplant. It doesn’t love to dry out but is very tolerant of lower humidity compared to the other species I offer. It has pretty red berries and a yellow and maroon flower.
This is the only plant offered in the shop that has not been propagated in-house. The grower of these plants is Matt Winchell. They are healthy, seed-grown plants. The last photo is representative of the plants available. They are well rooted and shipped meticulously in their pots.
