    Intermediate grower. This is such a resilient species. I've had the plant since 1975 and it's never hosted insects or fungal/bacterial infections. It's experienced temperatures from 34° to 138°F and never whimpered. Flowers are 1 1/2" across and pleasantly scented.

    Holy crap, 138 F?!? What were the circumstances around that? Very nice plant and good to know about its resilience, sounds right about my speed... :p

    "138 F?!? What were the circumstances around that?"

    I was going to sea and paying my 14 year old son $30 a month to water the green house. He turned the main circuit breaker off to avoid destroying his coiffure (fans), then waltzed off to school without restoring power. God forbid he should go to school with ugly hair. Then he did it again. That's when I installed automatic watering.

    Nice specimen. Quote: ” Then he did it again.” They always do something. In March I will leave my collection for 2 weeks with my daughter. Will see what this year score is going to be.
