Product description

The flowers of this beautiful climbing plant are asymmetrically curled. Due to the shape, the flowers have the appearance of a corkscrew or snail shell. The scented flowers are white-purple coloured, which after some time transitions to a yellowish colour. With the use of nectar, ants are attracted to the plant for fertilization and possibly for the protection of the plant. This climbing plant does well indoors and can be placed outdoors in the summer months, granted the plant is placed in a sunny spot. The Corkscrew vine is the only plant in the ochliasanthus family and was previously listed as the species Vigna caracalla.
 
Sowing description: Pour hot water over the seeds for a short period of time. Afterwards leave the seeds soaking in lukewarm water for 12 hours. Sow in sowing mix at a temperature of 20-25 degrees Celsius. Germination will start after a couple of weeks.

Monique

Een enorme plant voor het huis, die ieder jaar veel bloemen geeft. In de winter wel beschermen en vaakl toppen eruit halen, voor je 't weet zit hij in de dakgoot


Luca

Soaked for a night, planted the next day and the first two seeds already sprouted the day after. Incredible! Fyi: The seeds were placed in a heated incubator (~25 deg) with bright light on top.


Edwin

5 feb gezaaid. 5 juni staat er een enorme plant en ben ik een paar keer per week bezig met het leiden van de takken. Een aantal stengels zijn al wel 5 meter lang!
Prachtig voor langs de muur of laten groeien langs een dikke tak met veel zijtakken.


Niels

Zaden waren snel gekiemd, de eerste sprong al uit het potje na een week, de rest volgde binnen 2 weken. Zaailingen zijn al hard aan het groeien.

Een aanrader!
