Condurango is a natural species. It is native to the Andes region of South America and can be found growing wild in its natural habitat.

Condurango is a woody vine with elliptical leaves and clusters of small, white flowers. It produces elongated, paired seed pods. The vine can climb up to 30 meters in height and is typically found growing in mountainous regions.

Condurango, scientifically known as Marsdenia cundurango or Gonolobus condurango, is native to the Andes region of South America, particularly found in parts of Ecuador, Colombia, and Peru. It typically grows in mountainous areas, often in forests or along the edges of forests where it can climb and twine around trees and other vegetation for support.

The habitat of Condurango consists of high-altitude regions with specific environmental conditions. It thrives in areas with moderate to high humidity and well-drained soil. The climate in its native habitat is typically temperate to subtropical, characterized by cooler temperatures due to the higher elevation.

Condurango vines are adapted to growing in partial shade or dappled sunlight, as they often climb trees to reach sunlight filtering through the forest canopy. Given its native habitat in the Andean mountains, Condurango may also be found growing in rocky areas or along slopes where it can anchor itself to the terrain while seeking sunlight and moisture.

Overall, Condurango’s habitat reflects its preference for cooler, mountainous regions with adequate moisture and support for climbing.
