This member of the Rubiaceae family was
given this name by Odoardo Beccari in 1885. It is found on Aru
Island off New Guinea in the Arafura Sea, growing on the branches of the rainforest trees with quite
some water and little to some sun. The caudex can grow to
fifteen centimetres in diameter, the single branch up to 35
centimetres long. The flowers are white.
In my experience, the seeds should be
sown within a week after opening the fresh fruit.
