I got this little beauty at one of Fairchild's aroid show & sales. There's another coming on Saturday, September 20, 2008 - Sunday, September 21, 2008. If your in the south Florida area I would recommend a visit! I always find something unique when I go so I'm looking forward till then. This vine is taking over a small wall I built by my bananas. I can't complain though because it's beautiful. It's in the shade of the bananas. Also, I have it in a pot which sits inside a dish with a little extra water. It seems to be flourishing!
