Anthurium scandens ssp. pusillum

Anthurium scandens ssp. pusillum is a small species with an interesting trailing habit and purple berries. This is a widespread subspecies occurring through much of Central America and parts of northern South America. This Anthurium usually occurs at elevations that are high enough to be cool and misty from clouds rolling by.  In their unique way (for an Anthurium) they weave through the tangle of plants that are occupying the same branches. The plants are regularly putting out new flowers and at the same time have older flowers in some stage of producing seeds. This plant was photographed in El Valle, Panama.
