Planting and care

Kumarika is a large climber with slender, smooth or sparsely spiny, striate and quadrangular branches. The leaves are alternate, 8 to 20 centimetres long and 4 to 12 centimetres wide, variable in shape (ovate, lanceolate or elliptic), glabrous, shining, apex acuminate or cuspidate and base is usually rounded.

The main nerves are 5 to 7 and the petioles are 1.3 to 2.5 centimetres long, stout, narrowly sheathing below the middle. The tendrils are slender and very long. Flowers of Kumarika are greenish-white in colour and are borne on stalked, many-flowered umbels, 1 to 3 together. The pedicels of both male and female flowers arise from an aggregation of a number of minute bracts.

There are 6 segments of the flower and are usually reflexed. The fruits (capsule) of this plant are spherical, pea-sized, smooth and green in colour and turn red when ripe.

Caring for Kumarika

  • This is a very damage-tolerant plant capable of growing back from its rhizomes after being cut down or burned down by fire.
  • This, coupled with the fact that birds and other small animals spread the seeds over large areas, makes the plants very hard to get rid of.
