Tsuh Yang,

Although a tuberous aroid (with aerial shoots), Deni Bown's book Aroids,
indicates that they have been found growing in trees. Apparently the burred
bulbils catch on mammals and/or birds and are carried far and wide. I grew
it once upon a time and no longer have it. I would treat it like a tuberous
aroid, i.e. pot it up. Use a humusy soil, or epiphyte pot mix, and keep
moist but not soggy--you'll rot the tuber. I wouldn't give it full sun.
Bright shade is a kind of catch all category. Once you have the plant
producing it's bulbils, play with the epiphyte character.
