Trellis or moss pole, or something else?
So, I recently stumbled into my local nursery and this guy reached out and touched me πŸ˜‚

This is an admittedly terrible photo, but as you can see here Drago the dragon tail has quite the vine going already. It's not so stiff it can't be trained a bit as it is now, but I wouldn't want to bend it much past where it is now.

First of all I wonder if he needs to be repotted into something a bit larger, and I also wonder if it will sprout roots in that bend if I allow it to rest on top of the soil.

Secondly I don't really know what to do with the vine at this point. Does it need a moss pole, a hanging basket, is it okay as-is all propped up, or maybe it would be happier if I tied a rope to ceiling for it πŸ˜‚

The shape of this one is super cool and interested, but also a bit challenging so I'm curious if any of you have thoughts on the matter.

Thanks!

You have such a big boy now I would probably suggest a trellis. You can even put a large on on your wall and let it climb away
@tmbryant37 definitely a moss pole. You can order them from Amazon.
