Bow string hemp originates in Africa, but grows wild in some subtropical countries. In Southern Florida it is often planted as estate boundaries. It grows really slowly, so reproducing can take a long time. The easiest way of reproducing is to plant the side sprouts. If the bow string hemp is grown out of cuttings, most times it doesn't show the pattern and colours of the parent plant. It produces extrafloral nectar. This means, that the nectar is not produced in the flower but at the bract above. The flowers have a sweety scent at night.

Additional Information

  1. They can only be bred to the same species.
  2. Most probably, variant 2 is only available by breeding. (TBC)
