Seed collected in the Transvaal by Kirstenbosch Botanic Gardens Yet some writers still consider this correct for hort. guineensis (a Ceylon species!)--but this still seems to have remained quite distinct for us over the last twenty years with handsome thick, curved abbreviated strap leaves, strongly banded, and margined with maroon brown wavy edges with a distinct papery rim. We ship the Kirstenbosch clone--you can call it what you will. Excellent houseplant--the name refers to the somewhat pleasant scent of the blossoms ( yet we feel serious delusional imagination is involved with this botanical decision).
|Cultural Code||HP TGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
