ANT PLANT (SMOOTH FORM)
(30cmAbcD) Myrmecodia beccarii (Smooth Form) are unusual epiphytes..a wonder of nature. White flowers emerge from the small hollows in the ball and then you get white, red, pink or orange fruit. From North QLD. It has small semi-succulent thickened leaves growing on a hardened ball (hypocotyl) which develops from its stem. Part of the swollen base with small chambers that provides housing for ants. This is also beneficial for the plant as the plant digests the ants leftovers. Can also be grown in pots rather than on trees. Filtered sunlight. Avoid over watering. Coarse epiphytic potting mix.
