This unusual conversation piece produces in abundance strange looking green and white flowers in late summer. It has a unique method of pollination. The tubular 2½ inch flowers are lined inside with downward pointing hairs that temporarily trap insects. They are then released the next day covered with pollen. With thick leafless twining stems, it is best displayed in a hanging basket. Plant in partial shade with a well-draining cactus mix and allow to dry out between waterings. Needs protection from freezing. Native to South Africa. A detailed description of this weird plant can be found at PlantZAfrica.com.
