Bejuco De Santiago Aristolochia

We have a new "Baby". I just bought a Duchman's Pipe, a Aristolochia trilobata to be exact.
The Aristolochia trilobata has both beautiful glossy leaves and incredibly weird flowers. According to the gardener, like a Strophanthus, it has long streamers from the flowers that can get over a foot long. Its Nepenthes like blooms distinguish it from other Aristolochias such as elegans, gigantea, brasiliensis and ringens.
Temporarily situated in my office window I am exited to see this one bloom, which should be next year :)
