Distribution and ecology: Central America, the West Indies, northern South America, Peru, and
Amazonian Brazil, in deciduous to evergreen lowland forest (Aymard, 1998). In northwest Guyana,
frequent as large canopy liana in mixed forest, smaller individuals in secondary and Mora forest.
Phenology unknown. Seeds are dispersed endozoochorously (Maas and Westra, 1993).
Use: Kapadula wood has the reputation to be a powerful aphrodisiac. A piece of stem is chopped off
and dried in the sun. To serve four persons, a piece of ca. 5 x 5 x 2 cm is split and boiled into a bloodred tea. When drunk hot with sugar and milk, it tastes like Ovomaltine. Kapadula is said to work as a ‘builder’, stimulating sexual activities and curing impotence. Kapadula often occurs as large woody
climber, its leaves invisible from the forest floor. Informants all agreed that there existed a white and
a red kapadula, and that the white type aroused sexual feelings by women, while the red type worked
exclusively on men. The different types were recognised by their wood colour instead of by their
leaves or fertile organs. However, this colour varies a lot in the field and is not quite indicative for the

Six species of Dilleniaceae were collected under the name kapadula: Davilla kunthii, Doliocarpus cf.
dentatus, Pinzona sp. TVA2509, Tetracera asperula, T. tigarea, and T. volubilis subsp. volubilis.
Little agreement existed among informants on local names and types. It thus seems that species are
confused and used similarly, without noticeable differences in their effect. T. volubilis subsp.
volubilis it is treated here, since it was by far the commonest ‘kapadula species’ in northwest Guyana.
Kapadula wood is the main ingredient in aphrodisiacs made with the following ingredients: locust
bark (Hymenaea courbaril), cockshun root (Smilax schomburgkiana), kufa root (Clusia spp.),
sarsparilla root (Dioscorea trichanthera), monkey ladder wood (Bauhinia spp.), granny backbone
wood (Curarea candicans), and devildoer wood (Strychnos spp.). The components are soaked in
alcohol to make a tonic or boiled in water for an hour. The ‘kapadula wine’ is added to milkshakes,
porridge, or other dishes. It is said to be ‘good for the nature’, strengthen the body and protect against
diseases. Amerindians often call these aphrodisiacs ‘pork-knocker medicine’ or ‘black man’s tea’,
implying that they are not familiar with them. Yet many of them know exactly how to prepare these
beverages. Coastlanders often ask Amerindians to collect the ingredients from the forest, as they
cannot identify the species themselves. Cooks in mining camps prepare the drinks for the labourers.
Amerindian pork-knockers admitted they tried out these drinks and told wild stories about the effects.
When a large piece of stem is cut and held upside down, clear water starts flowing from the wood,
which can be drunk when thirsty in the forest. Snakebite victims are advised to drink only kapadula
water, as rain or river water would worsen their condition. Bottles full of kapadula water are collected
for the patients until they recover.

The sap is also used to disinfect sore eyes, and drunk instead of normal water to relieve the symptoms
of diabetes. To collect kapadula water for a sick child, a young liana is cut and tied together so the
water cannot flow out. The vine is taken home and the water dripped in the child’s eyes. The sap is
also drunk as a remedy for cough and colds. Pregnant women are warned not to drink kapadula water,
since it can cause abortion. Even cutting the liana with a cutlass during pregnancy is believed to
provoke a miscarriage. The sap is sometimes deliberately drunk for this purpose.
In remote areas, where women deliver their babies at home instead of in a hospital, kapadula leaves
are used to disinfect the navel strings of new-borns. The leaves are parched on a metal pot or burned
in the fire and ground to powder with a bottle. After cutting the umbilical cord with a razorblade, the
grey ash is rubbed on the navel remnants. This treatment quickly dries the navel and causes the
remainder to drop off. A decoction of scraped kapadula bark is used daily as an antiseptic wash to
clean the navel. Apart from kapadula, the ashes of burnt widi leaves (Astrocaryum gynacanthum) or
shells of the krekete snail (Ampullaria sp.) may be rubbed on the navel for the same purpose. In areas
closer to hospitals, this custom has died out.

Notes: (1) The species is called ‘fire rope’, because its rough leaves scratch the skin of the passer-by; (2) This is
also reflected in the Warao name, as ‘ero’ signifies liana and ‘karara’ means razor grass.
