Flower and fruits of Rikke's plant.

2,5-3 centimetres long. Around six weeks after flowering.

After five years, the caudex on the seedling have reach 28 centimetres in diameter.

   This member of the Cucurbitaceae was given this name by CÚlestin Alfred Cogniaux in 1881, and is found in Africa. It prefers well-drained soil, lots of water in the growing-period and some sun, but not necessary much. The small flowers are yellow, and it can also be reproduced by cuttings. The caudex can grow to 50 centimetres in diameter, and the vines reaches six meters. I have found most in forests.
