    :SUNsmile:Went to our taxi drivers banana fields in January,Hua Hin, Thailand. Fell in love with a wow blue climber and he readily pulled ripe seed pods from the base. Like a sweet pea pod. Full of ripe black seeds,same size. I have some to spare. Google it -plenty of pictures.

    They look stunning, I would ask for some, but in my hands they would probably die a slow death, and I would have wasted your very generous offer, what do you think?? should I risk it??

      Such a pretty flower. You can tell it was some dam guy who named them though. So unfortunate.........

        Anyone got seeds of Prepucium purpureum? A very delicate flower prone to random opening, usually easy to coax into action with a little TLC. A young plant can bloom without warning at almost any time.
