Pod Parent Flowers
 
 
Culture Notes from Donor: Parent plant: Temperature range W (70-90°F). I keep this one in full sun for 2/3 of the day and surprisingly she does very well. I keep her outside in Florida all year where she experiences a few cool winter nights (the coldest about 38-40°F.)
 
Comments: I get seed pods every year. Sometimes they are spontaneous but most of the time I pollinate them.

Parent plant: I have had this plant for a few years and she blooms every winter. Very large plant.
