    We found this species when we were driving on a small road just north of Jardin, Colombia. There were a couple of plants growing in small trees just a meter from the road. Altitude at around 1700-1900 meters. Was suprised as this place donĀ“t get so low temperatures. No ID yet but working on it.

    Much easier to enjoy your images than to try to grow it.
