Tree ʻōhelo is a multi-stemmed endemic species. Often in the forest, it grows epiphytically in trees or on downed logs. The berries are tasty, but not as sweet as other members of the genus. The other ʻōhelo species are much more commonly used.
While rarely cultivated, the slow-growing plant can live up to 20 years. Keep it in a protected space and provide plenty of moisture.
