Baphicacanthus cusia [suia]
Stock Number: 62148
Availability: Out Of Stock
Family: Acanthaceae
Cultural Code: TGH CGH what's this?
Price: $15.00

Large shrubby habit, kneed stems ranked with pairs of dusky decoratively fleshy leaves and topped with tubular lilac flowers. Robert Newman shared this important Thai herb with us. Perhaps best known as "Ma Lan Gen" in traditional Chinese medicine. Seems to demand regular warm temperatures and reliable levels of humidity to thrive.

Cultural Codes

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.
