Hi Jeff,

I have had a cutting of this plant for a few years now. This plant needs a lot of space, given the right conditions it gets massive. The grower who sold the cutting to me said that it was somewhat difficult to vegetatively propagate it, and that it took several attempts before he was successful. Apparently it is much easier to grow from seed. Unfortunately I have never followed up on how he did it. Its an awesome plant with striking flowers, and if you have the space and right conditions, its definitely worth growing.
