 Cercestis mirabilis
Family: Araceae
African Embossed Plant
Origin: Tropical Africa
Small shrub 2-5 ftEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.Edible

Decorative triangular shaped leaves are green with whitish silver markings that slowly fade as the plant matures. Initially the juvenile plants starts as terrestrial vines and then becomes climbing epiphytes, sending out long bumpy, adhesive roots. Like almost all aroids as a specimen matures it morphs into a plant with a totally different color and shape. In young plants or shoots the leaf blades are not perforated but as the blades enter the adult growth stage the perforations begin to form.

Young leaves and inflorescences - cooked and eaten as a vegetable.
