Air potato
Dioscorea bulbifera


The "air potato" is good for a surprise in a home: it grows one of the fastest vines out from its aerial tubers.
When placed openly (not under soil) with other plants in a pot (e.g. Ficus) or in flower arrangements, it covers them fast with beautiful large leaves. It soon grows - with a speed of up to 20 cm per day - up on any item it can curve around in your home and converts your home into a tropical jungle.


The "air potatoes" come in different sizes: from 1 kg pieces to small tubers of about 100 g and 3 - 5 cm diameter. The bigger - the faster...
The 3 tubers on the right side of the picture are from a different local species with smaller leaves.


Air potatoes freshly collected.The tubers grow on the vine and fall to the ground in winter.


Dull office changed into a jungle by the species with small leaves.

product list and online store


Your ecologically friendly production of cut flowers:
proudly traceable!


Imagine, the traceability of your supply chain leads your customers to the tropical jungles of the Mekong river and to the Himalayan mountains where Tibet meets Yunnan. Immerged in diverse culture and rich biodiversity, your customers can visit the places and people where your organic products start from pristine soils, clean air, and where they support the livelihood of local ethnic communities.

Would this add to the sustainability and credibility of your company?

Would your trademark benefit from international research publications lauding your company's involvement in saving the rain forest?

If you are in the food, cosmetics, flower, herbal, and medical business, certifying your products as contributing to rain forest and biodiversity protection will be an advantage with a competitive edge.

The TianZi Biodiversity Centre is working with German Universities to design land use systems, which are bound to change paradigms: we promote rare agro-biodiversity species, manage complexity, and find alternatives to destructive forms of mono culture.

If all this is in line with your company's business concept - please contact us.

The TianZi Team.
