Dicranopygium sp. Guna Yala


Where to begin with this one? Hmm.  This oddball Dicranopygium lives along streams in Panama and has intense purple-black foliage, which just gets darker with age.  It is an excellent candidate for a riparium, and enjoys having it’s feet wet, but can also grow equally well in terrarium conditions as long as ambient humidity is high and it doesn’t dry out too much.  This is a       s       l             o                 w   growing plant.  As in it took my plants seven years to bloom.  From seed, I would take it takes 5-6 years to reach blooming size (mine took long as I didn’t know how to keep them initially).  More information and photos about this species and it’s reproduction can be found here.

Available plants are similar in size to the last plant pictured, around 2.5 inches tall and 2 years old.  They will have at least three leaves and are growing well.  The medium they are growing on is heavy, so they will be shipped bare root.  If you would like a bag of the media, please comment in the checkout form and I will include enough for a small pot.
