two reasons to join this forum, we are planning to visit Kruger park next year, and a question about Ipomea 'krugger park'

The name is commonly written with 2 'g's and the park got only one ?

I 've received from a freind some seeds of that species, and I haven't no idea of the best way to make them germinate.

anybody knows about the biosystem where that plant live ?
does he need a lot of water to start the germination ?
Any other informations about that plant will be welcome

Thank you for your answer

Thank you for your answer Freda.

But the one I'm looking for it's a special Morning Glory. Ipomea sp 'krugger park' it s a caudex plant.
The flower is an usual Morning glory flower like the picture from
http://www.isibindiafrica.co.za/kruger/kruger.htm

On the second picture the plant with the caudex

That why I suppose the seed must germinate in certain condition
