Marcgravia ‘El Coca’

This coveted Marcgravia is a newer species out of Ecuador and has elegant red-purple foliage.  The leaves easily reach 5″, and will get a few inches larger outside a terrarium.  Leaf undersides are red.  The foliage remains this dark red-purple when mature.  Like other Marcgravias it does well growing up a vertical surface, but this one also likes growing in a basket or otherwise pendant fashion.
