    So, when will you be getting some cuttings for us to buy?
    I'll take one when you do please.

    Do you have this plant Will?

    Is this person in the tropics, as the name suggests? I'm wondering how it will fare here with our colder winter nights.

    The pics for Abelmochus manihot that I find in a search look quite different than the pics on his blog. Some of the internet pics look like the African Hibiscus that I grow.

    I read that they are high in protein. Are they safe as an occasional treat for my sulcata?

    I know they won't survive my winters. My plan if I can get a cutting is to start off inside, transplant outside in summer and then bring it back in for winter or start another cutting off my own plant.
