Staff from our Rainforest Project team are interested in testing the seeds of this species. Unfortunately despite several visits to a site with plants that have flowered well, no mature seed pods have been observed. Instead they collected cuttings from the wild and these plants are now being grown in the Garden as a cultivated seed source.
This is the first time our plants have flowered.
Note: Care should be taken when handling large quantities of this species as some workers were temporarily blinded when employed for several days collecting large quantities of this species for drug evaluation.
