Description: From one of our collections gathered from a high altitude, where it grew as an epiphyte on moist mossy cliffs in the mountains surrounding Quetzaltenango, Guatemala in the winter of 2001. Forming small colonies of erect mottled stems 80m tall with variably shaped alternate leaves from ovate to lanceolate, terminating in a decidedly pendulous paniculate inflorescence, with trilocular red fruit which had followed the white-purple flowers. Best cultivated in a freely drained but organically rich soil, in sun or light shade, sheltered from extreme cold. Used to be Smilacina salvinii.
