Here are my vines.............there are 2 of them planted in this tub. I need to pilfer some of those big zip ties from the shop and loosely fasten the flopping parts to the trellis.

Just looked up this vine in the DB; wow those have some amazing flowers! You must be growing these indoors? Which one is yours, since I see several different species in the DB? And they're fragrant? Looks yummy.

Woofie, I don't have pix in the database. No clue as to whether they are fragrant. I saw them in Mexico and knew right then it was a must have for me
Yes I have a g'house.

They are fragrant .. kind of lemony.

Anna you had asked how big they had to be to bloom ... here's a bud on a rooted cutting. Forgot to add that mine is Solandra maxima.

Oh my, but those are tempting! How much light do they need? Any chance I could get one to bloom in my south-facing new room?

Here are some pix of the blooms. The first one opened on Easter morning. I just KNOW my Mom had a hand in that...........(she spent Easter with Jesus this year for the first time..............). I know it was a sign from her! Angel
