Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

Plant indoors under heat in a loam-based compost mixed with sharp sand and composted matter such as leaf-mould. Place in a warm and light place

 

Flowering

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

The tubular flowers two-lipped flowers appear in Summer

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Mid Summer TO Late Summer

Take semi- ripe cuttings from this season's growth in Summer. Cut neatly, just below a leaf node, a 5" approx. piece of a healthy shoot that has soft growth at the tip. pinch out the growing tip, and cut off the bottom leaves. Dip the bottom of the cutting in hormone rooting powder, and carefully place in a pot of cutting compost with the leaves just above the level of the compost. Water, label, cover with a polythene bag, and place in a warm, bright place, with bottom heat, out of direct sunlight. Take the polythene bag off periodically for a while for ventilation (at least twice a week)
