Marcgravia sp. White Sinus

This striking Marcgravia species is from Ecuador, and is one of the various ‘white’ species that are newer to the hobby (not to be confused with the older white species from Colombia and Panama).  It is a slower growing Marcgravia (aren’t all the good ones…) that has stayed rather delicate looking, with only immature foliage produced in the terrarium.

This lefthand photo is the more mature growth, (photo by Gilberto Merino of Ecuaflora, where this plant originated from) and the right is what my plant look like 😦
