Andre -

You'll have that corner covered in no time at all - if you watch the growing tips for a while you can actually see them grow in front of your eyes....!

Nice, Ernst!  Why wait till May? Try eating them while they're tiny still - they taste like fresh peas!

Johan, as dit die een met die rooi blomme is?? Dis 'n  Odontonema Strictum (Firespike).  Hulle groei baie maklik, immergroen en elke paar jaar as hulle te hoog word kan jy dit tot 10cm bo grond afsny en hulle floreer weer.

Thanks for the name Adri, it propagates so fast (It shoots from the ground/roots) I keep on cutting back.
Johan, just do not try to put those stems trough your Viking. I did and had a job cleaning the unit.
The plant sap is like bostik!

Thanks for the tip Rena I will wait till there are plenty before I try the babies!

Yum!  :-* Just love chockos
 :mmm: Ernst you can send some my way anytime.

I have given up on my vine, as we have a protected specie "Bower Bird" that strips the plant naked of all leaves.
As to why these birds should like chocko leaves is beyond me  ???
