Ain't the Internet wonderful? You whine about a plant being too expensive, and an alert commenter tells you where to buy it for a lot less. Thanks, Dustin!
Get thee to Armstrong's if you are in Southern California. Today.
In other New Plant news, I got this Xerosicyos danguyi over the weekend.
How could I not?
Yes, it's a succulent vine. Cool!
Endemic to Madagascar, it can get quite large. Xerosicyos means "dry cucumber". Plants grown from seed will form a caudex, plants grown from cuttings will not. They are dioecious, meaning there are plants with only boy flowers and plants with only girl flowers, so my plant will be lonely. Awwww...
