    General Description
    Scandent epiphyte or semierect, terrestrial herb; stems elongate, frequently to 1 m or more long, 4-7 mm diam., sparsely long-rooted at the nodes; the internodes (0.6)1-8(11) cm long; cataphylls thin, 4.5-7.5(11) cm long, acute and apiculate at apex, promptly weathering, soon deciduous, sometimes with a few pale fibers persisting. LEAVES persisting at the upper 6-10 or so nodes; petioles erect-spreading, subterete, narrowly and shallowly sulcate, 5-16(24) cm long, 2-2.3 mm diam.; geniculum 5-10 mm long; blades usually ± oblong, sometimes lanceolate, narrowly oblong-elliptic or oblong-ovate, abruptly or gradually acuminate at apex, usually truncate to rounded at base, sometimes acute or subcordate, 9-25 cm long, 2.5-11 cm wide, moderately thin: the upper surface semiglossy; midrib raised in a valley above, diminished and sunken toward the apex, prominently raised below; primary lateral veins 4-11 per side, departing midrib at ca. 45° angle, sunken above, raised below, straight or slightly curving to collective vein; interprimary veins usually present; tertiary veins usually prominent on lower surface; basal veins 1-3 pairs, usually free at base, all but the uppermost soon joining the margin; collective vein arising from the first basal vein, 2-5 mm from the margin. INFLORESCENCE erect, shorter than the leaves; peduncle terete, 5-15 cm long; spathe lanceolate-elliptic, olive-green or pale green, sometimes tinged purplish, 3-4(5) cm long, to 1.7 cm wide, abruptly acuminate at apex, weakly cordate at base, inserted at 45°-50° angle on peduncle; stipe usually 2-5 mm long, sometimes absent, or to 10 mm long; spadix pale yellow to yellow-green or green, sometimes tinged with purple, 1.5-4 cm long at anthesis, usually 4-5 mm diam. near base, 3-3.5 mm diam. near the apex; flowers square to weakly 4-lobed, 2.5-3 mm wide in both directions, the sides straight to jaggedly sigmoid; 4-6 flowers visible in the principal spiral, 6-7 flowers visible in the alternate spiral; tepals semiglossy, minutely papillate, large nectar droplets scattered over the surface when anthers are emerging, lateral tepals 1.5-2 mm wide, the inner margin broadly convex; pistil weakly emergent, medium green, slightly darker than tepals, semiglossy; stigma colorless, raised, brushlike, ca. 0.5 mm long, with stigmatic droplets 1 -3 days before anthers emerge; stamens emerging slowly from the base, the laterals preceding the third and fourth stamens by only a few spirals; anthers cream, inclined over pistil, ca. 0.5 mm long, ca. 0.8 mm wide; thecae ovate-elliptic, slightly divaricate; pollen creamy white. INFRUCTESCENCE with spadix to 8 cm long, to 2.5 cm diam.; berries yellowish-green, subglobose, ca. 5 mm diam.
