I bought a small 3" pot Spring 2012, didn't grow super fast but is a steady flowering vine, don't let it dry TOO much, and likewise it doesn't want to be soggy. I simply brought it indoors (Portland is cool and too wet in the winter) and it was fine in a sunny window, took a rest mid winter and with mild fertilizer it's already blooming and growing again in March. Mine is about 4' tall and dense, I just repotted it. Easy to grow and very interesting small flowers, hasn't had any bug problems.

My daughter has had excellent results growing this in Alaska and I am now trying it in Arkansas. I am so hoping it grows as well for me as it has for her and others!

My Manettia Luteorubra, Candy Corn Vine is growing but no "candy corn". I wonder what I'm doing wrong.

Lovely vine, that behaves well, but did not survive our record cold winter in Baton Rouge, LA (8A)

I grew this in a container on my deck last year. It grew about 6 ft up a beam. It is easy to grow & flowers continuosly until frost. My kids loved it and so did the hummingbirds.

I bought this plant at an early spring home and garden show. It only had 3 short trailing stems about 3-4 inches long and it was in a 2 inch pot. I repotted it into a 6 inch pot and then about a month later into a 10 inch pot. It is now mid October and needs to go into a much larger pot. I have a 4ft. topiary frame that I made for it and it has completely covered the frame and has been blooming nonstop since I bought it. It will be coming inside soon for the winter as I am in zone 6 but I am hoping to keep it going through the winter so that it is ready for my hummers when they return in the spring as they just loved it.

Very easy to grow here in full sun but make sure it does not run out of water since it causes leaves tip burn.

I planted two small plants that I obtained from a small nursery in Kingwood, Tx. (just north of Houston) about a year ago and transplanted them into a large clay pot using normal commercial potting soil. I sat them next to a swing arbor and provided them a trellis to climb on. They went nuts! They are the most wonderful and pleasing plant I have ever had any dealings with. This thing has bloomed since day one...slowed periodically, but never stopped. A little Osmocote is applied infrequently. During the winter (down to the mid twenties for short periods of time) I simply covered it with sheets, removing it upon warm-up. I am so glad to hear that I can propogate it from cuttings.

This is a beautiful plant. I am growing two of them in Mexico. I have found that it is extremely sensitive to hot, direct sunlight. If growing in a hot, sunny climate, it will appreciate shaded areas. I almost lost them, but they are coming back quite well now in the shade. It is also somewhat sensitive to over-watering and over-fertilizing.

grew from small plant purchased at the Pontiac, Michigan farmers' market. Transferred to larger 20 in pot with a 4 foot trellis and away she went. Grew till late october on my deck - in Waterford, Michigan - northwest Detroit.
