Common name:
Corkscrew Vine

Origin:
Tropical South America

Minimum temperature:
10 degrees Celsius

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.

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!
