Beautiful pink-flowered nectar-rich exotic climber-trailer, native to a wide region across the far east and northern Australia, ideal for frost-free locations. Dark green glossy leaves, and blooms that come straight out of the branches. Likes filtered light and humidity, not too much water especially in winter. Here's some cultivation tips from Brad's Greenhouse to help you raise yours.
APPEARANCE: Exotic-looking native climber/trailer with fleshy succulent leaves and large round clusters of pink starry waxy flowers USE IN: Beautiful indoor and conservatory plant for cooler states, or outside in subtropical gardens LOCATION: Plant in free-draining compost or orchid mix in bright or dappled light in the garden or indoors. In the wild they grow like bromeliads in the branches of trees. In far north Queensland they may flower less due to the warm winters CARE: Keep it on the dry side, especially in the cooler months when growth slows. A cooler spot in winter seems to encourage flowering when the warmer summer weather returns. Mist regularly to maintain humidity if the air is dry and keep it above 5C. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 3m H x 0.2m W. YOUNG PLANTS: These are tubestock plants with a healthy young root system and will establish quickly in your garden. The pot height is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. May be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on.
