Tropical Dutch Man's Pipes are perennial, evergreen to semi-evergreen, usually woody climbers from subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. In general they are fast growing with ornamental, lush, cordate foliage and typical pipe-like, pendulous flowers, which may be quite large in contrast to their winter hardy cousins from temperate and cool climates. The tropical members in this broad genus are easily grown in any humus-rich, well drained soil in a sunny (winter) to partially shaded (summer) spot throughout the year. Plants require a climbing aid and may be cut back in spring if they are becoming too large. In winter keep plants drier at a minimum of some 15°C to 20°C. Ideal for the heated greenhouse or warm wintergarden.
Sow seeds flat in any rich, well drained soil at some 25°C. Keep seedlings sunny, especially in winter months.
