Air potato
Dioscorea bulbifera


A very fast growing vine growing from a potato-like tuber. It entangles even large objects as it winds up quite fast. In winter the vine dries and aerial tubers form high up in the trees.

The flowers of the air potato hang in clusters.


The vine quickly grows up trees and makes lush, annual foliage on otherwise leafless trunks.

The aerial potatoes of Dioscorea hibernate during winter. This is the best time to ship them.
