Marcgravia aff. umbellata

This distinctively marked Marcgravia (no pun intended) is from Ecuador and seems to be one of the easier species to grow, and is rather quick once established.  The intense white leaf venation gets more dramatic as the plant matures, with new foliage looking rather bland in comparison.  The maroon stem offers a nice contrast.
