Marcgravia rectiflora

Marcgravia rectiflora has been in cultivation for over a decade, long before the ‘Marcgravia wave’ hit.  It is native to Cuba and perhaps the easiest Marcgravia to grow.  It is tolerant of a wide range of conditions and grows very quickly over a background or piece of wood.

There are two species of Marcgravia in some of the images below, only the larger, greener one is rectiflora.  The other is sp. Round Peru.
