Nautilocalyx pemphidius

frankiokc(AR)December 27, 2006

I think my Nautilocalyx pemphidius is growing suckers in the leaf axils. Should I remove them or let them grow if I plan to show the plant eventually?

It's been awhile since I've grown or even seen N. pemphidius (can't imagine why--I love it!) but if I remember correctly you can leave them on and show it. Seems to me I remember some that were quite wide and grew like a good groundcover.

I see you got a better answer on the gesneriad-l. Good to read it, and thanks for reminding me of this beauty!
