Scaphosepalum beluosum

The species produces masses of unusual 1cm flowers that open successively on horizontal and pendulous spikes over many months so that mature plants are always in flower.
The 15cm long, broad leaves are attractively tinged with red and show that the plant appreciates a shaded spot away from direct sunlight reflecting the natural habitat.
The species is restricted to cloud forests in Ecuador from 1500-2200m where plants experience year round moisture.
The name Scaphosepalum beluosum means ‘the monsterous flowered scaphosepalum’ which seems very harsh on the wonderfully flowers with their spots and warts. This is certainly a ‘monster’ we are happy to have in our collection.
Plants offered are growing in 7cm pots and have multiple flower spikes.
