Holy double negatives, Batman! Maybe a Dischidia sp.? Possibly oiantha.

I'm not positive, but to me it looks like a small epiphytic blueberry plant of the genus Sphyrospermum, maybe cordifolium or buxifolium. Yours looks like it has a pretty tough, woody stem, which is what this species seems to have as well. It's usually a moderately pricey plant, say 15 bucks for a decent rooted cutting. They grow in a trailing habit, dangling their stems down from the mount, and will produce blueberries when mature. This one's at the top of my want list, but I'm waiting to get a more permanent setup going so I don't shock it by moving it around too much. If that's what it is, nice find for sure!

The stem of the plant in question doesn't seem to have the "woody" appearance seen in the Sphyrospermum genera you list. I'm far from an expert, but it would seem as though it isn't Sphyrospermum. Hopefully some of our resident plantsmen can chime in.

epiphytes etc. 06-11-2014 02:13 PM

Sphyrospermum was my first thought too, but the growing tip screams asclepiad to me, so I'm gonna go with Dischidia.

I've done some researching and looking at pics but haven't came up anything.

I still believe this is a reasonable guess

Dischidia oiantha, the one I suggested in my first post
