My husband came home with several plants given to him by a South American man moving away. The man wrote their names down but no care info. I really need help with one he called Madre Selva or Mother Forest. He said you get it when you have a daughter and never cut it until she marries. What I get in my online search is a huge snake and a place with the same name and everything else is in spanish(sigh) Presently it is quite happy in a container but my husband wants to plant it along the fence. I am trying to benefit animals and butterflies on my property so I don't want it to be invasive and take over their habitat.Thanks!
