    I see this one in Florida and initially had to search high and low to find its name. Thank you for the photo. It is one of my favorites !

    I have a small one, but they do not like to get dry at all or they will wilt.

    Have you gotten any seeds from yours? I haven't tried, but sure would like to...

    A few years ago, several of the plants developed seed pods. Never had them before, or since. Perhaps some different bird or bug was flying around that year, to polinate them. The pods are quite odd looking; round spiny things that looked like green sea urchins.

    Hmmm. I wonder if they are in the moonflower family--round green spiny seed pods.
