Full Description

 This bundle of five SolidGrowth Curare plants and vines will enable you to drape trees, rocks and even buildings in a canopy of these lush tropical creepers! There is even a small version for use with Vue's ecopainter so that you can cover a tree trunk of rock in the lush green foliage!
One of the SolidGrowth vines is designed to hang from branches and other high places and although it 'grows' in Vue with most of it below the ground plane, when placed in the branches of a tree en mass, or ecopainted there, it quickly forms an amazing curtain of vines!

This legendary vine from the depths of the South American rain forests probably needs little or no introduction!
For those not familiar with it : curare is a fast-action poison that doesn't actually kill, it causes paralysis instead. Death comes by asphyxia when the victim's lungs are paralyzed. Paradoxically, it can kill as well as save lives. After 1935, with the identification of the plant (and the main paralyzing agent), curare was introduced to modern medicine as muscle relaxant during surgery.
The curare vine Chondrodendon tomentosum - known as ampihuasca by the Yagua Indias of Loreto, Peru (ampi = poison) - is one of the key ingredients of the mixture. Strychnos toxifera produces the strongest type of curare, in combination with other alkaloid plants.
Curare grows as a large liana, or vine, found in the canopy of the South American rainforest. This woody vine, sometimes 4 inches thick at its base, climbs a considerable height up into the canopy (up to 30 meters high). It has large alternate, heart-shaped leaves, which may be 4-8 inches long and almost as wide, with a 2-6 inches long petiole.(Taylor, L. 1998. Herbal Secrets of the Rainforest.)
