Tetrapterys is a genus of Malpighiaceae comprising 69 species. Tetrapterys discolor’s native range is Central and South America. Our plants originally came from Peru as seed. Some species of Tetrapterys have been reported as Ayahuasca admixtures.  We haven’t been able to find any information about T. discolor or its constituents.

Care and Cultivation of Tetrapterys discolor

Tetrapterys discolor likes a rich and moist soil in part shade to full sun. Deals well with our subtropical climate, including prolonged periods of dry weather, where it reduces number of leads and survives as a stem. Likes a lot of root space. Fertilise well over the growing season. A liana, it will prefer to climb over something like a fence or a trellis. Seems to be as tolerant of colder conditions as Banisteriopsis caapi.
