Epipremnum falcifolium

Epipremnum falcifolium Engl. is a very large root-climber up to 15 m. Foliage leaves are evenly distributed, lower leaves falling and thus leaves tending to become clustered distally. Petiole is canaliculate, smooth, dark green, air-drying pale to dark brown. Leaf lamina oblique-elliptic, slightly falcate, sub-coriaceous to coriaceous, apex acute, base unequal-rounded, lustrous dark green, air-drying strongly discolorous with adaxial surface deep black-brown, abaxial surface pale to mid-red-brown.

The genus name Epipremnum is derived from the Greek terms 'epi' (upon) and 'premna' (tree stump), a reference to the epiphytic growth habit of plants from this genus.
