Native from the rainforest of Central America, M. Adansonii prefers it warm and humid. It will most likely grow without much difficulties in your house as long as you keep the humidity ideal, which can be done by having it in your kitchen or bathroom or misting it on a regular basis.


Altough they love their humidity remember that in their natural habitat they climb up trees so won't like it if they are standing in water!


In nature it is a climber but many owners use it as a trailing/cascading plant so it's really up to you. The higher they climb the bigger the leaves will be, if you let them trail down the leaves will most likely be smaller.


Fenestrations will devellop as the plant matures, give it light to increase holes as well!


Sold in a 17cm basket pot.
