Caption: Hot Lips, Psychotria elata is part of the tropical rainforest understory flora of the Americas. Also called hooker's lips but hot lips is a little more family friendly. Interestingly, this plant contains the chemical dimethyltryptamine, a psychedelic. It is also used as traditional medicine among the Amazon people to treat aches and arthritis, infertility and impotency. The plant is pollinated by butterflies and hummingbirds.The flower is actually a pair of modified leaves,red lip-like bracts, that pout around the tiny star-like white to cream flowers. There are over 2,000 species of Psychotria. Rio Claro Reserve, Cabanas la Mulata, Colombia, South America; Hotlips102612.CR2
