I've lost mine, sadly. I still have a different species of Tricyrtis, though without any spots!

One to grow in a pot???

They can be quite tall, Linda - and prefer shade, as well. I wouldn't try a pot, it would need support in one, for sure.

This would look good in our jungle next year.

I have a Tricytis Miyazaki (Toad Lily) grows well in the shade and I'm about to order some more. Have you tried to propagate these. I wonder if you can you use layering and division to make new plants. Funny I should see this picture just when I was thinking about how to get more of these.

Valerie I really fancy having some of these.....

Valerie - you can either let them set seed and sow it as soon as it is ripe OR divide in very early spring before growth starts
