Tips&Care:Stephania Venosa



Venosa is one of Unique caudex, it is rarely to find and found on mountain in deep forest of North-west of Thailand same as Suberosa.

.

When I first saw their leaves and flowers, i felt like Autumn was here with red brown of leaves and orange-brown color of flowers are so special and nice.

.

Bloody sap is another signature of this caudex as Thais Name means bloody hut. If you own one, just cut a vine and you will see its blood.



Light:

Same as another Stephania spp. It doesn't like too strong sun. Please plant in bright area, its climbing vine will grow crazy.

.

Soil:

Generally just prepare well drainage soil is enough.

.

I use my mixture of soil (see the post before in#inkcactitips) and add more 1part of peat moss/grinded coconut shell. So the mixture of this is,

🌱2 part of peat moss

🌱1 part of soil from Samanea saman leaves

🌱1 part of pumice

🌱1 part of vermiculite

🌱1 part of perlite

.

Before potting I put 1cm thick peat moss covering the surface of soil in the hole for faster produces rootings.

.

Or just mix 2 parts of normal soil + 1 part of river sand

.

Watering:

Watering when the soil is dry. And water until the water drop from bottom hole.💧

.

Venosa leaves seem like grape's leaf but different color. The spring time of flowers is on June-September, you will see blooming flowers on vines after that the tiny leaves will come. Also dormant period in Thailand is Summer time on mid of February-mid of May. All leaves and teig will dried on caudex. You can cut all dried off and wait until Spring. It will grow new stem.
