SHIPPING INFORMATION:
We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reach down for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.


SALE plants may require an additional freight payment
SALE PRICES are EXCLUSIVELY for ORDERS SHIPPED

Myrmecodia species

Myrmecodia are unusual caudices producing tropical plants. Myrmecodia are Ant plants that are epiphytes in nature, but can also be grown in a pot in sphagnum moss fiber or orchid bark mix. It likes bright light, high humidity, and average water. It is a tropical plant, avoid freezing temperatures. The plant forms an interesting hollow caudex or swollen base which is a perfect nest for ants. The plants use the ant's waste as food and in return the ants get a nice shelter and sap. This species develops a spiny texture on the base and forms interesting shapes as it ages. Interesting in captivity, I have never seen ants near them. Those are aerial roots that you see.
