Possibly no one currently active on this site grows them but I do come across mention of some of them on other forums, infrequently though.

I have found Myrmecodia beccarii growing wild but have never tried to grow it myself.

The M. beccarii I found had spines on the caudex which apparently is unusual for the region they were in. I never did an extensive search through the area so don't know whether those were just a small isolated group.

I have found Dischidia in Papua New Guinea which were ant plants. In Australia I've only found Dischidia nummularia which wouldn't be an ant plant.
