Christia vespertillionis

This one was mine.

This is a beter one grown by a friend.
A tropical species from southeast Asia that is fairy easy to grow from fresh seed requiring little more than high temperatures and light levels. Grows to about 60cm tall and produces small white flowers - mine never got anywhere near to either of those lofty standards.
It was fun to grow through the summer then declined and died as soon as the night temperatures began to fall in autumn.
