A woody leafless vine clinging
to trees, to a height of 10 meters or more.The ends that hung
downward do not root to the ground. The terminal vine's outer
bark is easily separated from the center part by twisting (above).
The freshly cut vine exudes a sticky sap.
Commonly found in the secondary
forests in the Quezon area.
The bark is used in a concoction for
wound healing: The dried bark is pulverized and mixed with dried langka
leaves and a small amount of coconut oil and placed daily on the open
wounds, facilitating healing and preventing scarring.
