This extraordinary tropical trailing plant is a real botanical curiosity which is sure to raise eyebrows – especially as it comes in its own snail-shell home!

Dischidia pectenoides is an unusual epiphytic climber from South East Asia which has earned a host of peculiar nicknames: Kangaroo pocket, Ant vine and even Thruppence ravioli plant!

It bears thick, rounded, fleshy leaves, some of which develop into pouches, or ‘Kangaroo pockets’, filled with roots. These pouches provide cosy homes for ants who return the favour by guarding the plants against pests as well as fertilising it with nutrients from their waste products. Small, bright pink flowers are produced in the leaf axils. As an epiphytic species it requires little soil and this particular specimen is displayed in a real snail shell! Height and Spread: 25cm (10") 40cm High Glass Pot
