SUPER long vines, fun plant
chrissy from NY wrote on April 15, 2012

Living in Western NY the growing season is a bit short but if planted in a warm sunny location it will grow. Lots of room is needed for the super long vines. I simply wrap it around and around a trellis. and around and around and around....... fun thing to grow.

Grow luffa for your parrots
YoYo's Mum from CA wrote on February 07, 2012

I've grown luffa for my parrots. They love them so much! They chew it, rub on it, bite it, hang from it & never seem to get tired of it. Big parrot to canaries & finches find them irresistible.
