Passiflora bicuspidata is a very rare cool mountain species found between 2300-3200 metres in Choachí, Sibaté, Zipaquirá, Iguaque & Virolín on the Region Cundiboyacense plateau. It does not like the heat or too much sun but enjoys high humidity. This young plant, a cutting from one grown from seed & kindly supplied by Henk Wouters, is tiny with about 50 leaves to date but with the biggest being only up to 3/4'' or 2cm long. All the leaves are a little pale.
