Marcgravia sp. ‘Mendez’


2 in stock



Native to: Central or South America, locality unknown

Marcgravia sp. ‘Mendez’ is a very attractive shingling species with oval leaves that grow close together. The new growth starts out with an orange tone rather than red, with lime green markings along the midrib and around the edges. It turns green as it matures but the light colored venation often remains visible. Although it can start out very small, the leaves have reached about 3/4″ long in our experience. Requires moderate to high humidity.


To get a cutting started, keep the underside of the plant in contact with damp substrate like sphagnum moss, without covering the entire stem. It will root well into substrates like ABG or potting mix, but we recommend using sphagnum moss along with it to keep the plant from drying out.

Please feel free to message us if you have any concern or question about rooting a cutting.
