This seed is freshly collected from plants we grew from seed we originally collected in Central Mexico. Thick stems sport large floppy leaves and spikes of small white flowers. In autumn masses of attractive, glossy, purple-black, stem-clasping berries are produced. We have been advised by french botanist that this plant can be invasive in some conditions so please take care where it is grown.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
