One (1) Hydnophytum puffii

Hydnophytum puffii, ant-house plant, is an epiphytic plant native to Sabah, Malayasia.

This is a relatively newly described ant plant. This caudiciform is a member of the family Rubiaceae which include coffee and gardenias. The leaves are leathery and have narrow branches. There are tiny openings in the caudex which leads to a labyrinth of interior chambers.

They will ship bareroot (as a plug). You will need to pot them up in light mix. The do well with rinsed coconut chips, coconut coir and long fiber sphagnum moss. Our mounted plants grow slower then those in pots. They do not need ants to colonize their cavities to make them happy. They respond well to Osmocote fertilizer. Ideal temperature is 60-95F with high humidity.

They grow in dappled sun.
Ships bare rooted. Due to schedule and safety live plants ship out ONLY on Mondays. 
The last two photos are of our mother plants. The one that has a lot of tunnels visible was due to it getting burned by the Florida sun.
