I have been growing one in a large pot for several years now and this year it has really done well. It was in a more shady spot previously but after moving it to a bit more sun, many stems of flowers have grown--gorgeous! I have a metal trellis in the pot and clamp the stems onto it or onto other stems. What I have found is that mine likes lots of watering--at least every other day here, if it's not raining. I also water it with Hasta Gro every now and then. The only thing that has happened is the leaves get attacked by some kind of bug that I can't see but makes tiny white spots. And I love how it doesn't get out of control. I live in W. Houston so am not sure what happened with LeslieT! I'd send a pic but it doesn't seem to want to show up here!
