What other plant parents say
I absolutely adore this plant, everything about it. The best way to describe it is whimsical - their strange but beautiful flowers, the spiral vines, the way it grows with no rhyme or reason. In about a month it’s grown exponentially, and within a week of setting it up against the lanai one of its vines are already touching the roof! It just shot right up! I really do love this plant.
