Pothos scandens

Description: In the wild this plant grown on trees and climbs up tree trunks as far as the eye can see. It is a neat growing plant and when cultivated in a pot and allowed to grow against a log, it attaches itself to the support. The inflorescence is a miniature green spathe with an almost round spadix. Ripe berries are red in colour. Makes a good house plant with distinctive phyllodes (flattened petiole).

Habitat: Distributed through the Sikkim and Darjeeling HImalayas. 

Ethnobotany: Not known
