Myrmecodia tuberosa - 5"


Myrmecodia is a genus of epiphytic myrmecophytes, in the family Rubiaceae. Myrmecophytes, or ant plants, live in a mutualistic association with a colony of ants. These plants possess structural adaptations that provide ants with food and/or shelter while the ants provide nutrients. In the home, these plants do not attract ants and can live without them.
