Agapetes serpens

This unusual, attractive, and very rare plant is native to the Himalayas where it is grown as an epithyte. With the right climate, it can prosper, but it must be kept cool, and yet warm. Humidity is a key to its survival, and it grows from cuttings and seeds. Jkw

I grew that in my back yard for many years. I once let it go too dry..offed it. You can see the huge caudex it had on Dave's Garden (bay area tropics). I lost that photo to my old hard drive.
