Ant plants are epiphytes in nature, but can also be grown in a pot in sphagnum moss fiber or orchid bark mix. It likes bright light, high humidity, and average water. It is a tropical plant, avoid freezing temperatures. The plant forms an interesting hollow caudex or swollen base which is a perfect nest for ants. The plants use the ant's waste as food and in return the ants get a nice shelter and sap. This species develops a spiny texture on the base and forms interesting shapes as it ages. This is an appealing plant for collectors in search of weird plants. *ants not included ;)
