Amos, are you growing it without soil? Have all the leaves fallen off?

Actually, i dont really need to grow it until it produces roots or new shoots. It is very dry species i guess.

Cheers,
Amos

Why would anyone want to grow this? It's flowers smell bad, and the plant looks gross :rolleyes:/>, .... just my humble unsolicited opinion ....

Mm... I think you should know by now no matter how ugly, smelly, troublesome and dangerous a plant is.. there will ALWAYS be someone who wants to cultivate it like their own flesh and blood.

But yeah, this plant is not very pretty is it?
