Gourd hard to tell you that I have seedlings there not even close I bought one last fall before the cold it came in a little pot. I think it was a rooted peice of the mother plant. Just after christmas in my plant room it flowered.

So how big do they need to be before flowering?

They have to grow 5 ft or more before mine did

Really enjoyed your pix of "Hawaiian Sunset" stictocardia. Now it is time to grow some of the other species of Stictocardia. Their seeds become available in our fall months, and that is the time to germinate them and grow them. You might want to visit the Morning Glory thread and read what Beckygardener wrote about growing seeds last fall.
There are about 4 other species of stictocardia, with very similar flower color, but different shaped flowers. I think you are probably the one to have success with them all. Frank

Thanks Frank mines going to town right now I have really enjoyed growing this one. I have read some of Beckys posts she has it going on!

Marco Island, FL(Zone 10b)

I have one growing on a fence-- carry a machete and don't let small dogs or children near it! It grows QUICKLY!! I pull shoots off of it weekly so it won't strangle the other plants. It almost did in a fishtail palm-- has grown 40 feet very quickly! A great screen, -- we call it the bean-stalk vine!

Middle of, VA(Zone 7a)

Late joining the conversation...sorry but just in case - dogwooderitternet on ebay has them each year. He has great plants...always healthy

Debijayne.....wonderful to see you back from all that business. Pulease show us some pictures of that vine you are talking about. You probably have the most tropical yard environment, of all of us her at Dave's Garden, and our plants probably don't need the hacking to keep the size down. Most of us would like to see the leaves and the vines in a picture. Frank

Mulberry, FL

Thats were i bought mine from last year this one does not produce seeds

Marco Island, FL(Zone 10b)

I braved the killer mosquitoes and got a picture of the vine and some other vines as well, if anyone may be interested. We have hacked it back fairly much this summer as it is trying to eat a fishtail palm or two! The plant underneath is an Awabuki(sp) and grows like a weed as well.

Debijayne........... thanks so much for your picture of the fishtail palm and the Stictocardia! We here in the Pacufic North West can only dream of grounds and yards like yours............Drool.......... It would be nice to see more pictures of more plants in your grounds, and even maybe some horses.

Mulberry, FL

Thanks for sharing the pic. Heres one of mine a seedling mixed in with a couple different passeys it has not started to super size the leaves my older vine does that where the leaves get huge.

My ponderosa is going great guns as well! My Italian friends preserve them-- I'll see if I can get the recipe for you. I have Persian Lime. honeybell. Meyer lemon, grapefruit, tangerine and Key Lime as well. The Persian Lime from the flea market is doing the best of all of them! I have come to the conclusion that they need to be drowned in the first few years. You can never have enough limes!

Mulberry, FL
