I live in Ipswich,qld,have this near other trees & covered completely from wind. I water it with warm water in cold temps, its growing like crazy so will wait & see if we get a very cold winter, what it does to it. | Heather Dampier - Ipswich, QLD 09-Apr-2012

My Gustavia flowered for the first time last year and set some lovely seeds. I didn't have any luck in propagating them though. Its in flower again so I will try to grow from seed this year. I didn't realise that the pulp was edible. I'll try this as well | Rohanne Young - Thornlands, QLD 26-Oct-2017
