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.

Does anyone know if there are any other genera in SE Asia other than Remusatia with species growing as TRUE epiphytes.
If so which species?
Thanks in advance,
