ADA Sonerila hetrostemon 'wayanad white spot'


Sonerila sp. ‘Wayanad White Spot’ is a member of the Melastomataceae family found in the tropical cloud forests of Kerala, southwestern India, at an altitude of around 1,000 meters. It grows wild, clinging to moist, steep slopes that are also thick with ferns, begonias, and Urticaceae. The heart-shaped rounded leaves have white dots, and the flowers have three pink petals. In its native habitat, it has a tuber and is thought to have a dormant season, perhaps due to the presence of wet and dry seasons, but under glass container cultivation, it seems to have difficulty entering dormancy after the flowering season is over.
