The deep forest which this plant seems to love is often shadowy and atmospheric, with mist trickling between trunks like dragon’s breath. Appropriately, the flowers open at night and attract moths. It hosts skipper butterflies, and it can be worth checking the hollows between leaves for nests (birds and mice, according to Elsa Pooley).
