About Clusia Princess
The Clusia rosea, or the Autograph Tree, is native to tropical Central America, Mexico, Florida and parts of the Caribbean. Introduced into Hawaii, it is now one of the most invasive plants on the island and is a popular houseplant due to its easy-going nature.
The autograph plant is a hemiepiphyte, which means it can either grow on top of another plant with aerial roots or grow from seeds in the ground. It is also known as a strangler plant because when it grows on other plants, it sends down aerial roots, which suffocate the plant below and ultimately kills it.
Clusia rosea are easy plants to keep happy, just put them in a warm and sunny position with high humidity and keep the soil moist but not damp.
