This small exotic perennial produces stems of bright yellow flowers, with heart-shaped narrow, green leaves. Native to the Himalayas and Thailand, it prefers well drained soil , in full sun or partial shade, but will not tolerate frost, so should be brought inside for the winter months and the rhizome kept dry. It also makes a good houseplant as long as it is kept humid.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 20-25 degrees C. Seeds sometimes germinate within 4 to 6 weeks although some may take very much longer so please be patient. Plant out in the open ground in warmer countries or in a large container elsewhere.
