It looks great! I've never been able to grow this vine successfully.

Andy; I grow mine in a reasonable sized pot. That way I decide when it gets water & when it will go into a rest period. I stopped watering it a month after the last flower & then lifted the tuber out of the dry soil mid spring, put it in fresh compost & off we go for another year. It must have plenty of moisture whilst it's growing.

Sounds like good advice. One day I'll try this vine again...and start it in a pot then put it in the ground. I've always started it directly in the ground in the past.
