Heliconia sclerotricha - Lobster Claw

This listing is for 10 seeds of this rare banana relative from the Andean Mountain rainforests of Ecuador..

This species has pendant, maroon coloured flower bracts which are produced at any time of year once the plant is matured. Mature plants get to 3 metres tall (although flowering commences in plants around 1 metre tall) and look a lot like the related banana and strelitzia plants. It makes a wonderful houseplant, being tolerant of shady conditions. It will flower as a pot plant without too much effort, just requiring the humidity to be kept up as it dislikes completely dry air.

It is hardy in Zones 9 to 11, so it can only really be tried outside in only sheltered, frost free locations.

Full growing instructions can be found in my shop, the link to this on my Me page.
