Unusually enough a yellow flowering form of a white theme. Flowers have no scent.

Leaves are stiff and slightly oval and narrows down to a sharp tip at the edge of the leaf. Can turn red in sunligt which is quite decorative. Leaves are usually generously flecked.

Can be grown in a haning basket or trellis. As caudata twined around just about anything a trellis might be preferable allthough it might be difficult to move the plant off the trellis if needed as the branches break easily.

Likes warmth and moist. Should not be allowed to dry out completely.

Some find this one to like shade, but I successfully grow it in a south facing window where it thrives and flowers.
