This miniature species is a great example of one that is tiny yet mighty! Low growing, creeping growth habit with many pairs of lush leaves are suitable for a variety of conditions. Native to Mexico and down through Central America, Epi. porpax is best grown in medium to bright indirect light and intermediate to warm temperatures. Plants will love to ramble over mounts, wire frames or any surface with room and lots of air flow.
