Here in Sarawak Scindapsus crassipes,
S. geniculatus. S. beccarii and a couple of
yet-to-be-described spp. are obligate primary epiphytes; all form fans of
foliage that function as litter-traps. In S. geniculatus there is
extensive formation of short, erect, pointed roots into the accumulated litter
in the same manner as happens in many Anthurium.
