Corallocarpus (South Africa Caudex Gourd)

South Africa Caudex Gourds make fast growing annual to semiperennial vines from a perennial, woody caudex rootstock. The small, whitish-yellow to golden flowers are followed by decorative, small berry-like fruits (not edible) which turn to brilliant orange-red or scarlet with maturity. Being caudex plants and due to their fruits all species are nice pot plants for any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot throughout the year. Keep the dormant caudex completely dry in winter at a minimum of some 12°C.
Sow flat in any very well drained, humus-rich, preferably slightly sandy soil at some 20°C. Keep pots in full sun (winter) to partial shade (summer).
