The caudex of a wild plant in Bhutan - with flowers.


Rather dormant wild plant in Bhutan, but with flowers in January.


It grows as a epiphyte in nature, but in peat in the window. I will raise the caudex over the next couple of years.


Big plant in a German BG.


The flower.

   This member of the Ericaceae family was given this name by Hermann Otto Sleumer in 1939. It's found as an epiphyte on the Himalayan foothills. It gets water all year round and some sun between the trees. The caudex will grow to 15 centimetres, the stems to 70 centimetres. The flowers are pink, and reproduction by cuttings are also possible.

It needs a rather high air humidity.
