A highly ornamental species said to be from Panama, with dramatically textured foliage. Its fuzzy, peltate leaves can grow to 6"-8" and are almost black when mature! The whole plant also has interesting growth habits; it tends to be a shrub but will climb if provide a supporter. Pretty little pink-lip flowers rise frequently, promoting their attraction.
It does superbly in a high humidity setting. Perform well under medium-high light levels. It is rarely seen in cultivation and currently, we still have it in limited supply.
Offered are mature plants, established in 4" pot
