A Rheophyt from Sumatra: Furtadoa sumatrensis

Furtadoa sumatrensis M. Hotta 1981 is an arum family from Sumatra. The plant is one of three species in a genus named after the botanist C. X. Furtado, which, among other species, described 1935 Cryptocoryne nurii . He collected these plants on an excursion, but did not describe them. This is what the Japanese M. Hotta caught up with in 1981.
The author received a purely green form and one in which the petioles and the young leaves are colored reddish brown. He reports in this article about the ecology and culture of these plants in the terrarium and the aquarium.
