Hi Hywel

I know nothing of these plants even after all these years being a avid gardener , are they ok for a windowsill in a sunny spot , and are they easy to get hold off ?

I only have cold greenhouse so I think that rules that out keeping them over winter etc , I know you have posted photo's before and they captured my interest then

They like plenty of light, but not too much direct sun.
They don't like frost. It will kill them.

I had this one many years ago as a cutting from a friend of my mother.
I bought a different one in Wyevale last year.
I suppose you could get them on line if you have a look.
