    These flowers are really, really tiny. They look big in the pic, but they aren't. The "vine" is just the inflorescence. It is long and just keeps getting longer throughout the year, but it's only about as thick as a piece of thread - well, kind of fat thread.

    Nice Kevin.
    I don't understand your tastes. Some plants I would think you would hate and you like the flowers. Are you turning into Bada?

    Cool contrast, the orange and green. That's really neat Kev. How big is the plant?

    Mike - no, not turning into bada. We are very, very different, but I do like variety. I can never tell what I'm going to like or not like.


    Louis - it's actually kind of a normal sized plant - probably about 6 inches tall or so. The inflorescence starts out at about 2 inches above the foliage and just keeps getting longer and longer for months. And yes, we won't go there anymore.
