Can get leggy if it doesn’t get enough light. Tough plant that came back from root rot and thrips!

Very easy. I’ve never had any problems, and this lady has been through a move, remodel, and lots of ignoring. She’s such a beauty, delicate in appearance but hearty in reality. She’s one of my very favorites. Just looking at her will always bring a smile to my face ❤️

Though I’m having some trouble with it currently, I really like this plant. When I got it, it was kinda small. I put it outside in a shady area and it got plenty of rain and it became amazingly lush and dark, rich green. Since moving houses I attempted to place it in a similar spot but it is less bushy, droopy and kinda yellowing.

Very picky about watering and light, be careful with overwatering because it rottens very easily

Not sure about this one, it is better than it was. I think it doesn’t like the ceramic pot, in my experience most plants don’t.

In love with this vine, some leaves turn brown easily though. Grows very fast, and can trim as desired.

This plant is really easy to propagate- just stick some cuttings in water for a few weeks and you’re good to go. Plus they grown really fast and have funny little curled flowers in the spring/summer.

I love these plants! I have two and both grow beautifully with little attention. I have not propagated yet but hope to one day.
