Not very hardy in Britain, plants tolerate temperatures down to about -5°c provided they are in a warm sheltered location. Whilst they can succeed outdoors in the mildest parts of the country, they are not hardy at Kew. Plants often start out life as epiphytes on the stems of tree ferns, eventually rooting into the ground. Large plants respond well to heavy pruning and careful transplanting. Plants have three distinctive forms of foliage at different stages in their life-cycles, the second stage, as a sapling, is often the most interesting. Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus.Dioecious, male and female plants must be grown if seed is required.
