Mostly found in tropics, but can be grown other places in pots. We are too far north to grow it in the ground, so we have it in a pot and move it inside when the outdoor temp get to 50 or so at night. we just moved it outside 2 weeks ago, but it is next to the house, still fairly dormant right now.
When Emmie gave it to me it was 8″ tall, she told me just sunlight and water was all it needed–grew to be about 24″. The following year, DH added fertilizer and it is now almost 10′ and had the seed pod.
If this works and I have one ready, you can pick it up when you do your WDW trip–just a little detour to Jacksonville.
I received a plant a few years ago from a neighbor and it produced a seed pod last summer. It opened up this past week, so we shall see if we can get some to grow.
The woman I got the plant from has never grown them from seeds, she has always done cuttings. I’ll let you know how we do.
You are copping out, here! We live in an agriculturally rich state, you goof! Plus, I know where you live. I was in your neck of the woods for close to a week, two weeks ago. The weather is nice down there (in comparison to what we’ve got going up here). There were robins all over the place! You have a real Spring! You could at the very least plant a couple of tomato and pepper plants. Go to Home Depot and pick them up and pop them in the ground.

You just need to start, but don’t tell me we can’t grow anything here!
