caseyhoo

your plant come from nursery ?

it is a myrmecodia yes but a tuberosa ? the most common are tuberosa but in this species a lot of ' variety' ( 16 , according to their native region )

have you others infos on her native region ?

I am looking for also some rubiaceae ( myrmecodia-hydnophytum-squamellaria-myrmephytum-anthorrhiza) , ant dischidia-solanopteris I have some rubiaceae in trade or swap ( plant-drupe) .

Not aware that they have variety
Mother plant comes from logged secondary forest in Sarawak and visually fits the characteristic of tuberosa.
Do not have the photo of flower but its uninteresting tiny white flower which ripes into tiny orange fruit.

mine is from the "virgin" jungle of Tioman Island, south east of Malaysia....what would be the variety?

owning antplants is because of the strange tuber shape of the plant however, housing ants has pros and cons...ie you have a healthy plant that attracts ants, thats good......and you have nightmare are ants a disease carrier that affects other sensitive plants like the orchids.....more experience grower can explains further
