    Interesting. With the right provenance, it might even be hardy in my unheated greenhouse here in northwest Oregon. I bet it would work nicely in a coco fiber lined hanging basket filled with orchid bark and leaf mould.

    Fantastic plant great reading. Thank you again for another plant added to my list, I am always amazed at what is living on this planet. Eyes opened

    The fruit take about a year to ripen and it can contain about 70+ very small seeds. Flowers and fruits can be found on the same plant. I keep my plant in a greenhouse and seed is still produced without being pollinated. It is very easy to propagated by cuttings.

    I’ve grown it as an indoor/outdoor plant in Ireland (started easily from seed purchased from Silverhill Seeds in ZA) for several years. Super easy to keep happy. Then I moved to Barcelona, and have grown it outdoors, under shade for another 5 years, where it blooms and fruits readily. Also quick and easy from cuttings. Soon to be planted out as an epiphyte in a botanic garden on the Costa Brava.
