    Interesting. $25 and it is a weed at some forests here :)
    It even invades other pots in my greenhouse.

    Thank you. The blooms are from tip to tip 2cm tall. Is it normal for this species that the habitus is climbing?

    What do you mean by climbing? A picture maybe?

    Now I see Tom. Yes, that's usual habit for the species. Happy plant by the way!
