I have  managed  to  grow 3  seedlings  now in their  4th  season from 
seed  obtained  from the  AGS  seed exchange . They  are now  to a  
size  where I am hopeful they might  flower next  year. The pot they  
are growing in sits  in a  saucer  which helps  keep the  moisture  
they need during  summer.

I'm  sure they  were not  happy  today when  our   temperature was  32C 
  until  darkness which   is  current about  9.30pm.
