Description: Rhizome tubers are complex rhizomatous sacs infested with Azteca and other ants. Ants supposedly mine sugar-laden tissues in the rhizome tubers to hollow them out for occupation, and bring in debris later exploited by roots entering sacs.
Culture: Grow in hanging basket in fern mix. Allow rhizomes to run into new basket for propagation. Does not propagate well if rhizomes detached before established in new basket.
