Love this plant. It sure gets lots of looks and comments in my summer garden. Kareoke, I have mine under light on a table and it is developing new growth, so I think it will survive as a green plant in the house during the winter. Mine flowered two flushes this summer. How about yours Jean? You have more warm months than I do.

You will love it when it does bloom. It might be one that needs the heat to set bud. I've only had mine for this summer, but it didn't take long for me to become impressed. I cut it way back to bring it in the house. I didn't have room for vine and trellis. If it sets buds, I'll let you know.

This is my first year with this beauty, and you could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw that first bloom. Awesome! So, kareoke, I can't comment about over-wintering, but do plan to keep mine in the basement, which stays 55-60, and under lights. Later, maybe I can squeeze room for it upstairs. I would think yours would do well in a sunny & warm room. Mine has a few pods, so I am excited to see if they mature. Burgie, seems to me, that once it started blooming in late spring, it always had a few blooms at any given time. It slowed down quite a bit once the weather became cooler. Guess I'll try to root a few cuttings...back-up and to share.

thanks for the replies, plants are new for me, I decided I needed something to do, and I have fallen in love with DG, didn't have a clue there were so many plants I had never heard of, and I want them all, now I wish I had moved to a warmer climate when I was young enough.
