    Hi Homer,
    can I just ask you: Whats the soil requirements for this plant? Ive heard somewhere to put it in normal compost soil, but Im not sure if this is right....
    Nice plant, Il sow my seeds soon aswell [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    you should sow them now!! Because they need to flower and seed in time well u have a greenhouse but they dont hang to well over the winter either way they seem to like the outdoors. Ok heres how to do it just plant in something like miracle gro soil its great for these guys! I was EXTREMELY lucky this year as last years plant never seeded so i thought i wouldnt have one. but here some how there was a seed in a pot of another cp that must of not grown from last year and here it sprouted this year because i found 2 that grew in this pot randomly and i seen it and i was like hey its a ibicella. just plant and as the heat and humidity come it will make the plant grow.

    Didnt last year you wanted me to write a page on growing them to post as a sticky? MAybe i should if i get some time. You can ask me all you want about them. just plant them and give them heat.

    Carnivorkid, how tall/wide is your plant? I'm thinking about growing these indoors under fluorescent lights, but from the pic, it looks like the plant is 2' tall (and getting bigger)!

    Thanks.

    well I sowed the seeds today [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    I used good quality potting soil with a bit of sand thrown in, and Ive made the soil wet and placed the seeds on the top.
    We finally have a string of warm weather, HOORAY!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    It was hot yesterday, its hot today too, tommorow its supposed to be really scorching, and its supposed to be hot on wednesday and thursday aswell, with plenty of sunshine

    Starman, be sure to keep those seeds nice and moist, though! My recent experiment leads me to believe it's more important than high heat. Moderate temp and light and good humidity were the ticket for mine to sprout.
