Additional Info

It is native to Puerto Rico, though it is also widely found in Venezuela, Peru, and Brazil. It is usually propagated by seed. Its flowers are purple blooms which are speckled and very pretty to observe.

However, the smell that emanates draws flies that help in its pollination. The smell is that of meat that has rotted.

The plant must preferably be planted near a wall or made to grow over a trellis. You must water it well so that the root remains moist and diseases to the root are avoided.
