A huge plant from Obesa Cacti Nursery in South Africa; around one meter in diameter.

  

First described by Joseph Burtt Davy in 1926, belonging to the Passifloraceae family. It is from the southern part of  Africa, and can get op to 2,5 meters in diameter, and 1,5 meters heigh. It prefers acid mixed soil, well watered in the summer and can dry out in winter. The flower is crème in colour, typical passion. It can be reproduced both by cuttings and by seeds. The cuttings might not form a caudex!

Dioecious, I don't know what I got. The sap is poison, and the plant can't stand frost. The soil must be acid, I don't know how much! Cuttings are possible, but won't form caudex.
