A noble-looking climbing plant, with deep green taper stems, emitting great white roots, by which it clings to trees. LEAVES are a rich deep green, with a tapering stalk more than two feet long; the blade is deeply divided into three oblong, wavy, acuminate, diverging-veined lobes, of which the middle is a foot, and each of the side lobes nine inches long, placed at right angles to the first, so as to form a hastate figure. INFLORESCENCE: The spathe is green, about six inches long, crimson within, but only opening for a short time while the anthers are shedding their pollen. Style fleshy, stigma membranous, radiate, locules 1-ovulate (?).
Found growing out of a mass of roots of Orchids.
