    Unhappy

    Hi.

    can anyone post a pic of this plant? I have never seen it before and I heard that they are often in local nursuries so I would like a pic of it. I can find them easier with a pic because they would stick out [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] thanks

    Martin,
    That is a fantastic specimen of Ibicella, wow! Thanks for the link. Can you tell me if this plant will grow in a smaller habit, and is it suitable for indoor cultivation?

    The stem looks relly gnarled... Its staked i belive... What kind of growth habits does it have inthe wild? Does it cling to some other plant, like a tree, or does it scramble

    I studied that plant a little in Biology. The type by that name we studied lived in the dry parts of Africa and their seed pods got stuck to osterige feet. It's a cool plant. I bet these ones are named after it because their seed pods look a lot like it.
