Cobea scandens seedlings


Cobea scandens seedlings

These dont look much at the moment, but really love these little treasures. Theyve germinated really well. Well worth getting going early as they take a little time. Otherwise known as the cup and saucer vine. Nice deep purple flowers. Gorg!

Ty Lil, Ill show you when theyre all blooming away merrily. I really like these. Dont worry about the cloisonne Pimp. I dont have time to polish the blooming things at the moment. Far too busy with me seeds!
Thanks Pixi, wait till you see them in flower! :))))

Yes ML, they are a climber. I usually grow them in a large pot and put a wigwam of canes in - like sweet peas. Otherwise Ill grow them in with another climber - like a rose. If you have a new arch or something you want to cover quickly they are very useful for that.
Amy, its not too late, get some on the go quick. I sowed some of the eccremocarpus that you kindly sent me. It has germinated really well so I should have another nice climber to go with the Cobea. Red and purple...mmmm love em!

How much time do seeds need to germinate? I sow the a few days ago in small pots on the window
