Solandra grandiflora variegata

CoolPlantsFebruary 20, 2005

I was watering in my greenhouse when I realized something was staring back at me. This variegated chalice vine was flowering! The scent is of coconut but the flower size was huge! You could fit a grapefruit inside it! The whole thing was 6" from side to side of the flower. Looks like something from the little shop of horrors!

When I can get the photo reduced in bits I'll post a photo.
