Red Bud


Dischidia pectinoides
These vining ant plants from the jungles of the Philippines are best grown in bright indirect light. Treat them like an orchid, and these tiny red buds will open into tiny red flowers, overwhelmed in size by the giant balloon-like leaves that are colonized by ants (in the wild, not in your home.)

Notice the droplets of water on the big leaves. That must mean they were just misted by Ian.
