This species can take extra low temperatures and surviving under snow well protected
from strong wind and extra dangerous frosts. Native to Santa Catarina up hills its is used top such
nature challenges and in fact it does not blooms fine if not undergoing to freezing cold temperatures.
This way this plant is useful to cold areas.
In order to assure self made seeds I used those brown paper bags. This allows the flower to breath and prevents any pollinator agent to bring alien pollen to this precious flowers.
These flowers are perfectly capable of self fertilizing without any help as the feminine and the masculine parts are very close to each other.
See the already fertilized flowers here.
