Hans,
I'd love to try it here but only Griffinia espiritensis and G. liboniana are allowed into the country!
It certainly looks a lovely thing.
cheers

Fermi,

Obviously in the upgrade to the AQIS database in recent years the others have been blocked off.  The seed I tried years ago was aracensis, and at the time Griffinia were all allowed in.  makes the loss of them even worse.  There definitely are a couple of Griffinia growers here in Aus, but not something that I know of ever being listed anywhere unfortunately. :'(
Cheers.

Min winter temp -8 or -9°C. Max summer temp 40°C. Thankfully, maybe once or twice a year only.

Fermi ,

I would say : If you have a problem with receiving the other species of Griffinia so please say your friends they should send it to me ...I will cultivate it for you  ;D ;D ;D
