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.
