Hardiness: In winter keep it dry at temperatures above 5 degrees Celsius (even if it is resistant to short frosts).
Propagation: Seeds or herbaceous cuttings. Leave cutting surface to dry well, before planting
Warning: handle with care because it is a poisonous plant

Beautiful, unique plant!

First off, this plant was very well packaged and there wasn't a bit of damage to show that it had been transported across the country. I was very impressed and happy to see that the pot had a top layer of pebbles. The Adenia still lives in the same pot after a month or so, growing well. I was also happy that I did not have to change the soil! The media is a perfect mix. It lives outside in the rainy Florida weather without missing a beat. Overall super pleased. I know this plant is going to grow to be one of my favorites.

Adenia and Bisponosum

The A. venenata has good roots and is emerging from dormancy. The two P. bisponosum appear to be cuttings and not grown from seed. I hope this does not negatively impact caudex growth as this does with some species.
