Amydrium humile

Amydrium humile Schott forms sprawling colonies with coriaceous, occasionally almost sub-succulent, green to greyish leaves scattered along rooting sterile branches the internodes of which often exceed 20 cm. Arising sporadically from these scattered nodes are condensed branches, bearing three or more cordate leaves.


The genus name comes from the Greek amydron = dim, faint, obscure, weak.
