Marcgravia sp. Peru ‘Round form’

This charming little Marcgravia is a smaller species, capable of producing larger leaves in terrarium conditions but most often keeping the 1/4 leaves.  Foliage is a nice scalloped shape with purple new growth.  As the plant matures, it will take on a purple-green.

*note* there are two species of Marcgravia in the images shown here.  Only the small, purple-green one is sp. Peru.  The larger, solidly green one is rectiflora.  They could not be separated for the picture 😉
