Habitat

It is mostly found in areas with rainfall higher than 2500 mm/yr (Chi2 test), at lowlands close to the coast (logistic regression analysis, Chi2 test). In both mature forest and open places (e.g. along roads in coastal savanna, in villages, plantations). In Ghana, seems to be restricted to evergreen forest, where it is most typical of swampy places (Hawthorne

1995a). However, the herbarium records for the whole Upper Guinea region indicate a wider habitat, with incidental observations close to water (e.g. rivers, streams) but not restricted to them. On sandy, sandy clay, and rocky soils (herbarium).

Regeneration

It has a phanerocotylar epigeal reserve seedling type (cf. de la Mensbruge 1966).

Phenology

Deciduousness: evergreen Dispersal: explosive

Timing: flowering period from March to May; fruiting period from October to November (Taylor 1960)
