    Beautiful! Reminds me of angel’s trumpets (Brugmansia?)

    Wow! Great photos of an intriguing plant. I am curious about the scale: are these big plants? Big flowers? Also the pollination information is very interesting. Thank you.

    I love it when one discovers the BPOTD by scrolling down and gradually revealing the beauty from top to bottom of whatever the day’s subject is to be. Today was a particularly satisfying moment. It was worth waiting for (it always is) and I hope you recover well Daniel.

    Good questions, Peony Fan. The vine grows up to several meters in length (perhaps I should say grows down, as this species is normally hanging from twigs high in the canopy). The corollas are up to 7.5 cm long.

    How is the pollinator known? Is a moth more likely? Get well Daniel.

    If set loose in the Caribbean tropics, could it become invasive? How are it’s fruiting structures? It seems to be a very beautiful plant.

    Tracy, it is mentioned in a book: Sunbirds: A Guide to the Sunbirds, Flowerpeckers, Spiderhunters and Sugarbirds of the World
