    Beautiful color! I don't grow mine well due to my cool temperatures, but always enjoy the blooms and fragrance. Do you grow this outside?

    Thank you, Wpinnix.
    It is grown outside. I hung it to a palm and it attached itself to the palm, pot and all. Last year, I took it out and placed in another pot and now it is in part shade and mostly morning sun. Just sprinkler water and fertilizer once in awhile.
