Grows vigorously in the growing season. Leaves will be bigger if the tendrils are allowed to climb and latch onto something like a trellis or pole. I keep mine in a hanging basket and have let it dangle for about 6 months in lower light. It did fine but didn’t grow much and the leaves started fading.
