Sinningia Rupicola - Caudex Succulent
This very unusual epiphytic plant from the rain forests of Brazil has a small globular semi underground tuber from which the fleshly leaves will grow, almost hairless and glossy green on the upper surface and hairy, and reddish on the underside, during the spring and summer growing months. Bright pink but short lived tubular flowers will appear during spring on a short spike..
In the winter period, the plant will loose its leaves and go dormant, until the next spring when a new set of leaves will appear.
