Cultivar Origin:

Collected from the wild in French Guiana by Mr Natalino, a grower in Belem, Brazil.

Name Origin:

Named after Mr Natalino's nursery in Belem

Growth Habit:

Robust plant, thought to be a hemi-epiphyte.

Leaf Blade:

Narrowly oblong-triangular, mottled white and green, grows to about 2 feet. The midrib seems to arch at the point of petiole insertion causing the rear lobes to bend forward. The primary lateral veins depart midvein at close to 90° angle. The margins show undulations along the length of the leaf blade and mild quilting is observed along the midvein.

Bloom and Fruit:

Not observed

Distinguishing Characteristics:

The most distinguishable characteristic is the mottled green and white leaf blade color. That combined with the leaf shape, undulations along the margin and the arching rear lobes make this cultivar unique.
