Araeococcus flagelifolius is an intriguing and widely distributed species found in Venezuela, Colombia, Bolivia, Brazil, and Suriname. It thrives as an epiphyte, gracefully perching on trees in its natural habitat. Growing in clusters, this plant showcases long, slender whip-like leaves. The leaf color varies from green to a reddish-yellow shade, particularly in brighter light conditions. Within the foliage, the inflorescence emerges as a short panicle, positioned low and inconspicuous. The inflorescence bears small white flowers that eventually develop into dark purple berries. It is worth noting that there are six known species of Araeococcus, with their presence in cultivation being relatively uncommon.
