Description

A superb bright and exotic addition to any display, this broad-leaved exotic produces bi-coloured red and yellow flowers, which when finished produce large seed pods which turn from green to black, the seed heads being considered by many to be ornamental also.

Sowing Advice

Abrade a small portion of each seed with sand paper or on a rough brick or similar, then soak seeds for 24 hours before sowing 2cm deep in a good loamy compost. Keep in a propagator or warm place, at between 20 and 25 degrees C, and do not exclude light. Germination can be erratic, usually taking between 2 to 12 months, sometimes longer, so do not discard the seed pots. Pot on small plants frequently in a coarse loose compost to achieve huge plants very quickly.
