Previously known as Rektophyllum mirabile

Now this is a cool plant.This is one of those old collection plants that you rarely see anymore. I’ve finally propagated a bit of it and have one to share. The juvenile plants have an incredible flame pattern to the arrow shaped leaves. This is another weird aroid that changes dramatically as it matures. The mature leaves lose some of the white variegation and become perforated.

This plant also has an interesting way of propagating itself. It send runners out until it finds a suitable place to root, and forms a new plant. It is by no means invasive, in fact, we find it a bit slow growing.

There is a huge chunk of information about it here on Steve Lucas’ page:


The leaves are about 4″ long, similar to the plant in the second photo
