Please be aware that all parts of the plant are poisonous.

Olav (08-02-2015) FullFullFullFullEmpty Plant in mijn jonge jaren lang gehad (op de vensterbank) , dankzij zaadjes uit een botanische tuin.
Bloemen zijn ware kunstwerkjes met haartjes die één kant op staan. Insect kan wel in de bloem maar niet meer terug kruipen.
