We need Peter Boyce on this one, but there is a Bornean Scindapsus which grows as an epiphytic leaf-trapping rosette. I can't lay hands on Peter's revision so I can't look up which species it is, and I am also not 100% sure whether this species starts life on the ground or not....


Granted it is an old reference, but still the first one I go to to check on such things - Michael Madison's 1977 article in Slebyana II:1, Vascular Epiphytes: Their Systematic Occurrence and Salient Features, only lists Remusatia as being turly epiphytic, all other old world genera are listed as hemiepiphytes. Yup, lots have been found since then, but it's still a good starting point.
