Description

Bright yellow, green-spurred, chubby flared flowers delicately pencilled crimson inside, and set off with a dark calyx, grow in dense swarms on thin twining stems clad in tiny delicate leaves. This choice, valuable, and extremely rare Andean plant will improve yearly with a slowly increasing tuber in a well-drained situation.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time onto a good, damp soil-based compost, covering seeds to approximately their own depth. Keep the seed tray below 5 degrees C for many weeks, as these seeds are cold-germinators and can be extremely slow and erratic in germinating, sometimes waiting for spring before emerging. Do not try to force germination with heat, IT WILL NOT WORK. Do not discard the seed tray for at least a year. Grow on in 3 inch pots, do not over water. Plant with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
