Description:
The black jade vine is a rare climber from the tropics of eastern Asia. The impressive black-purple flowers are about 10cm large and grow in large hanging clusters. It is a climbing vine that can climb up to 20 metres in nature, but it grows less intensely than other Mucuna species. If grown in a pot the plant stays smaller and can be pruned. It can even flower when it is smaller and could even give flowers within a year! The best circumstances are a tropical place or a greenhouse with high humidty. It is a rare species and a good addition to a plant collection.

Een klein jaar later: plant bij het raam, langs draad om kozijnen raam heen. Is nu ca. 4 meter en begint na winterstop nu weer te groeien. Ben benieuwd naar bloemen.

ooo, weken geleden gezaaid, eerst gekerfd, toen 24 uur in water en toen in een potje, begint nu op te komen! Hoop dat het lukt!
