Full description and specifications

Marcgravia umbellata is a tropical climbing plant known for its attractive leaves and unusual shape. It is native to the tropical forests of South and Central America, where it often grows on tree trunks or rocks, taking advantage of the high humidity and partial shade.

Marcgravia umbellata has glossy, fleshy leaves, usually dark green. The leaves are arranged in a dense manner, growing on long stems that can stretch several meters if they have adequate support. The inflorescences are discrete, usually green or cream in color, and appear in the form of umbels, which is what gave the species its name.


  • Light : Marcgravia umbellata prefers indirect or filtered light. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves, so it is ideal to be placed in a place with partial shade, similar to its natural habitat.
  • Humidity : This plant requires a high level of humidity. Regular spraying of the foliage or using a humidifier can help maintain ideal conditions.
  • Temperature : It develops best in a warm climate, with temperatures between 18 and 26 degrees Celsius. It is sensitive to cold and cold air currents.
  • Soil : A well-drained soil mixture rich in organic matter is ideal. You can use a mixture for epiphytic plants or orchids, which allows good aeration and drainage.
  • Watering : Watering should be moderate, making sure that the soil is moist, but not overwatered. Let the upper layer of the soil dry a little between waterings.
  • Fertilization : Fertilize the plant during the period of active growth, in spring and summer, using a balanced fertilizer, diluted to half the recommended strength.
